Man faces weapons charges, others after alleged New Jersey attack

On Behalf of | May 8, 2014 | Violent Crimes |

When authorities do not have all the facts about a situation, an individual could potentially be charged for a crime they possibly were not involved in. If a person is in such a situation, preparing for the legal process ahead of them can be of the utmost importance. Therefore, if a person is facing weapons charges or other serious allegations in relation to a serious event, gaining knowledge about their situation could prove beneficial.

A man in New Jersey may soon be finding out more about his legal situation after he was recently taken into custody. The situation reportedly began after a female teenager was taken to the hospital for stab wounds. Authorities purportedly believe that she was involved in a physical altercation with the suspect at her home.

Police allegedly found a stolen vehicle that they believed served as a getaway car in relation to the event, and from that discovery, they apparently took the reported suspect into custody. At this time, the man is facing serious allegations of attempted murder, weapons charges and others. An investigation into the situation is still open.

It is unclear at this time if the authorities have other evidence that could implicate the man as having involvement in the alleged attack. Attempted murder and weapons charges can come with steep penalties if the suspect is convicted, and the man may wish to request to examine any evidence that the prosecution may have against him. Such an examination may allow him to better assess his situation and help him determine how to proceed with the New Jersey legal process ahead of him.
