4 Women Stabbed In Jersey City Street Brawl

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Four women — including pregnant twin sisters — were stabbed early Sunday during a street brawl with another woman in Jersey City.

Two of the victims — ages 23 and 24 — were stabbed in the left arm, while the 22-year-old twins sustained undisclosed wounds. All four were taken to Jersey City Medical Center for treatment, but authorities say none of the wounds were considered life-threatening,

The alleged assailant, 21-year-old Shantel L. McMullen of Jersey City, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a weapons offense. Police say she was armed with a long-bladed knife that she tried to discard when officers arrived on scene just before 1 a.m.

McMullen was treated for a minor laceration.

It was not immediately clear what started the brawl.

      To Sailordude and Father Mulcahy- first of all she is NOT Irish and to Sailordude, she is Black. Get your story straight before you make ignorant comments.

        You obviously can’t recognize sarcasm or overt racism (or humor, take your pick) even as you contribute to the racist dialogue. Maybe you should look up the word ignorant.

  • Barry Levine

    These wimmens should be tied to a post and given a good beating for acting like that…..wimmens getting into a knife fight with other wimmens…..this is insane……INSANE!!!

    I could understand if those wimmens were fighting over me, that woud be a sane and acceptable situation, but I was home with my mommy at that time.

  • Sailordude

    Why do white folks name their daughter a Shantel?

    Oh never mind, my bad.

    I hope everyone is going to be OK, Obama needs those votes in 2012!

  • Nick L 9075

    Is it the economy, the cost of living or just the fact that living in the NY area sucks (if you aren’t wealthy)?? because it seems like lately there have been this rash of stabbings, shooting, assaults, road rage etc.. Unlike the 1980’s & early 1990’s it isn’t due to drugs but basically people are very angry & hostile

    • KPMc

      It’s none of those things. It’s your upbringing.

    • Eu Harper

      To much ignorance & poverty in close proximity is the real cause

      • Bossofpeople

        “TOO” much ignorance, Eu Harper, “TOO” …but you’ve just reiterated the point.
