West Long Branch Man Stabbed Over Parking Space
Aggravated assault charges have been filed against a central New Jersey man who allegedly stabbed another man during a brawl over a parking space at a mobile home community.
Juan Sierra of Eatontown also faces weapons charges stemming from Monday night's fight.
Authorities say the 44-year-old Sierra confronted the victim, a 34-year-old West Long Branch man, because he had parked in front of Sierra's mobile home. The brawl soon ensued, and Sierra allegedly stabbed the victim in the abdomen.
The victim was treated at a hospital and released Tuesday morning. Sierra was treated for a severe finger laceration.
Sierra's bail was set at $15,000. It was not known Wednesday if he had retained an attorney.
