Rutherford New Jersey Police Arrest Suspect in Stabbing at Bus Station

Rutherford NJ police recently arrested a man in connection with a stabbing at a local bus station.

According to police, the attack occurred at a bus station located just outside a Union Avenue apartment complex. The suspect allegedly approached the 23-year-old victim, who was standing at the station while he waited for a bus.

The suspect and the victim reportedly began to argue with each other. Police said that the suspect and the victim knew each other before the incident.

At some point during the argument, the suspect allegedly took out a Smith & Wesson folding knife and stabbed the victim.

After the attack, the suspect reportedly fled the scene on foot. Rutherford police identified the 29-year-old suspect as the attacker. According to police, he is an unemployed resident of Rutherford, New Jersey.

Shortly after the incident, police issued a BOLO alert to surrounding police departments.

The suspect was apprehended when an off-duty Rutherford police officer saw a man matching the suspect’s description. The suspect was reportedly walking on Paterson Avenue in East Rutherford, NJ.

The officer, along with assistance from East Rutherford police, pursued the suspect and apprehended him without incident. According to police, the suspect had a knife in his possession at the time of the arrest; the knife was reportedly folded to replicate a credit card.

Police officers from the Rutherford Police Department and the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department went to the suspect’s residence on Washington Avenue. Officers allegedly recovered the knife used in the attack.

According to police, the victim was stabbed four times. He suffered serious wounds to his stomach, his chest, and his arm. The victim was treated at the scene by Rutherford emergency responders and then taken to Hackensack University Medical Center. The victim was also treated at the hospital; he was later listed in stable condition.

The suspect has been charged with a number of criminal offenses, including third degree aggravated assault, third degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and fourth degree unlawful possession of a weapon.

After being arrested and charged, the suspect was released from police custody with a pending court date.
