JACKSON, NJ – On Sunday, June 21, at approximately 11:20 pm, officers responded to a residence on South Cooks Bridge Road on the report of a disturbance.
Upon arrival, officers located a 28-year-old male victim who had been assaulted. The victim advised that he and a female had been at an earlier event with the suspects and had left and returned to the South Cooks Bridge Road residence. As they were sitting in the vehicle, a vehicle pulled up and the male suspect exited and knocked on their window, telling the victim to get out. The victim exited the vehicle and was punched by the suspect and a struggle ensued. As the two fell to the ground fighting, a second male ran up from the other vehicle and struck the victim in the head. The victim was stomped and kicked in the head and face as several pieces of jewelry, a watch and cash were stolen from him. The suspects then ran back to their vehicle and fled the scene. The victim was treated by First Aid at the scene.
