1 Injured, 1 Jailed After Train Station Brawl
Authorities say a brawl between two homeless men at a northern New Jersey train station ended with one critically injured and the other under arrest.
Twenty-five-year-old Hakeem Gordon was charged with aggravated assault following Sunday morning’s fight at the Hoboken PATH station.
Port Authority police tell The Star-Ledger of Newark that security video shows Gordon pushed 47-year-old Dwayne Anthony from the station’s top railing to the platform below around 2 a.m. Anthony, whose last known address was in Jersey City, was in critical condition and on a respirator at Jersey City Medical Center.
Police say Gordon was identified as the assailant due to a “very distinct” blue jacket he was wearing. He was being held Sunday at the Hudson County Jail on $75,000 cash bail.
