NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — Authorities have lodged murder and robbery charges against three city residents in connection with this weekend’s stabbing death of a man on Hamilton Street.

Manuel “Manny” Maldonado, 20, Jose David “Sparky” Vasquez-Rivera, 18, and Xavier “Caballo” Sanchez-Parral are being held on those charges at this time, according to a press release from the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office and the New Brunswick Police Department.

The three men allegedly took money from Enrique Perez Galindo, a 29-year-old New Brunswick man, in the driveway of his apartment complex at 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

The accused then allegedly stabbed the man, who was pronounced dead at 2:39 a.m. in his home, between Woodbridge and Bridge streets.

“He managed to return to his apartment, where he died,” the press release reads.

It’s unclear when Maldonado, Vasquez-River and Sanchez-Parral will make their first court appearance. They are presumed innocent, the prosecutor’s office noted, until proven guilty.

Anyone with information may call New Brunswick Police Det. Drew Weiss at 732-745-5200 or Det. David Abromaitis of the prosecutor’s office at 732-745-4436.
