UNION – An arrest warrant has been issued against a 20-year-old man wanted in connection with last week’s fatal stabbing inside a Union Township deli, Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow announced Sunday.

Daivon K. Brinson, 20, is the principle suspect in the Nov. 30 death of Mohinder Singh, the owner of Three Stooges Deli. Union County Superior Court Judge James C. Heimlich signed the warrant and set bail at $750,000.


Brinson is still at large and investigators are asking for the public’s help in locating him. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crimestoppers at 908-654-TIPS and is eligible for a reward of up to $5,000. All calls are kept confidential, authorities said.

According to the investigation thus far, it appears that the 41-year-old Singh was the victim of an attempted robbery, said Romankow. During the struggle in which Singh was killed, it appears that Brinson was injured, authorities said. This is based on evidence gathered at the scene, and other locations linked to Brinson, authorities said. His last known address is on Mt. Prospect Avenue in Newark.

“There was a blood trail leading from the deli,” said Romankow. “What we believe to be the murder weapon was found nearby.”

The investigation is being conducted by the Union County Homicide Task Force, the Union Township Police and the County Forensic Laboratory.

“This case seems to be another instance of pointless violence,” said Romankow. “The Singh family, like all victims, deserve to have this man caught and in jail.”
