NEW BRUNSWICK — Police are actively investigating the stabbing of two teenagers, one of whom died Saturday, apparently as a result of his injuries, Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan and New Brunswick Police Director Peter Mangarella announced.
The 14-year-old New Brunswick male was pronounced dead at 2:24 p.m on Sept. 25 at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. His companion, a 17-year-old male, was treated and released Sunday. The companion previously had been listed in critical but stable condition. Their names are being withheld by authorities at this time.
The investigation began when police were dispatched to the corner of Jersey Avenue and Delavan Street in New Brunswick after receiving a 911 call at 3:52 a.m. on Sept. 25.
Police arrived to find the teenagers had been stabbed. They were taken to the city hospital.
The investigation by Detective Mark Pappas of the New Brunswick Police Department and Investigator Michael Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined that the victims were approached by more than one individual and the stabbings occurred as a result of a dispute.
No descriptions of the assailants are available.
The results of an autopsy performed by the Middlesex County Medical Examiner’s Office were not immediately available. The 14-year-old male was a freshman at New Brunswick High School.
The investigation is continuing. Authorities are asking anyone with information to call Detective Mark Pappas of the New Brunswick Police Department at (732) 745-5217, or Investigator Michael Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-4018.
