NJ Man Allegedly Stabs Woman, Then Himself At New Year’s Party

LAKEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors say a southern New Jersey man stabbed a woman with a knife and then used it to stab himself.

It’s not yet clear what sparked the stabbings, which happened shortly before midnight Saturday at an American Legion Post in Lakewood.

Both the man and the woman remained hospitalized on Sunday morning.

Michael Paulhus, Ocean County’s executive assistant prosecutor, told the Asbury Park Press that the man slashed the woman on her neck, then used the knife to slash his own neck. Further details, including the identities of the man and the woman, were not disclosed.

No other injuries were reported.

    Most criminals have enough money to buy a gun on the street. I’m wondering about the relationship of this man & woman; if they knew each other, or he just picked her randomly. Since it happened at an American Legion post, and it was New Years Eve, I am inclined to presume that they knew each other.

    he was carrying a knife because the only peeps who live in lakewood (in da hood) are spooks (negroes for you older folk who live in the 60’s) and orthodox jews. i personally would be afraid of the jews. one out of every four jews is a kid toucher.
    4 out of 4 negroes are baby makers.
