Colts Neck Teen Charged with Attempted Murder in Stab Probe

A 16-year-old Colts Neck boy faces a first-degree charge of attempted murder, accused of stabbing a woman in her home and taking her car last July.

According to information from acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Grammiccioni, the teen was arrested today by county and Colts Neck investigators.

They also filed a first-degree carjacking charge along with a third-degree count of possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes and a fourth-degree weapons-possession charge.

According to investigators, Colts Neck police responded to a 911 call around 12:30 AM on July 7, from a woman who said she’d been stabbed and didn’t know her attacker.

Police and medical responders found her with numerous stab wounds. The victim recovered after several days of hospitalization.

Authorities found her car later the same day in Aberdeen.

During the probe, investigators determined that the victim heard noise outside her house and opened her doorway to find out what it was.

Authorities say the suspect pushed into the dwelling, stabbed her repeatedly, grabbed her car keys and sped off in her car from her driveway.
