Reward Offered in Attack of New Jersey Woman
Officials are offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the person who violently attacked a woman in her Somerset County home.
The 18-year--old sustained a head injury and lacerations in the attack early Saturday in Franklin Township. She had managed to flee the home and was found outside a neighbor's house.
Capt. Jack Bennett of the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office tells the Courier News of Bridgewater the woman is hospitalized in critical condition.
The woman was home alone at the time and a family car was taken. It was located Monday. But officials aren't saying where.
The woman's name has not been released.
