Police Investigate Three City Stabbings on Monday

January 29, 2013 at 10:40 AM

PATERSON, NJ - Two Paterson residents were robbed and stabbed in separate incidents in the 5th Ward late Monday night that authorities believe may have been committed by the same suspects, according to Lt. Richard Reyes.

Reyes said there also may have been a third stabbing in Paterson on Monday, but that case remains somewhat of a mystery because detectives have not been able to talk to the victim, who is in critical condition at Hackensack Memorial Medical Center.

The first of the two confirmed robberies happened at 11 pm near the corner of Summer and Essex streets, said, police said. The victim, a 19-year-old Paterson resident, said he was attacked by two men who took $50 in cash and his cell phone from him, while stabbing him multiple time, according to police. The victim, who is in critical but stable condition at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center, suffered lacerations to his neck, right side of his chest, left thigh and triceps, police said.

The second 5th Ward stabbing was reported 30 minutes later several blocks away, near the corner of 20th Avenue and Beech Street, police said. The victim, an 18-year city resident, told authorities he was walking down the street when two men robbed him of $50 and slashed his hand, police said.

Meanwhile, city police are still trying to figure out what happened in what appears to be a third stabbing that may have happened in Paterson much earlier on Monday.

Paterson police first leaned of that incident when they were called at 8:50 am by staff at the hospital in Hackensack, where a 27-year-old man from Ridgewood was being treated for a stab wound to the abdomen.

Reyes said the man's sister told authorities he had arrived at her home in Ridgewood in a Paterson taxi cab. She then drove him to the hospital in Hackensack. Police have not yet determined exactly where the man was stabbed or the circumstances of the incident.
