Aggravated Assault, Weapons Charges in Englewood NJ
A local Englewood man was attacked by a neighbor’s dogs which led to a fight with the neighbor who stabbed him in the hand, police say. The victim was sitting on his front porch on Shephard Avenue when two dogs owned by a neighbor attacked him. The dog owner was walking them without a leash. This led to an argument where the dog owner stabbed the alleged victim in the hand with a knife. Two Teaneck detectives were in the area and intervened, securing the weapon.
According to the NJ.com article, “Dungey was charged with second-degree aggravated assault, possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. He was remanded to the Bergen County Jail where he is being held in lieu of $55,000 bail.”
The victim was taken to the hospital in an ambulance but his wounds were not serious.
Second degree aggravated assault is. serious felony charge punishable by 5-10 years in prison. In addition, because it is a violent offense, the defendant must serve 85% of his prison sentence before becoming eligible for parole.

Finally, it appears that the defendant has a prior felony record which is an aggravating factor for sentencing purposes when the judge determines the length of his prison term.
