Police in Voorhees NJ recently arrested two men who allegedly assaulted several people at a Halloween party.
According to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, the suspects violently attacked four people at the Halloween gathering. Authorities indicated that the suspects were not provoked before assaulting the partygoers.
The Halloween party was held at a home located on Horseshore Drive in Voorhees Township, New Jersey. The two suspects reside in Delran Township, New Jersey. They reportedly showed up to the party as part of a group of men in their 20s.
Not long after arriving at the party, the suspects were asked to leave. Approximately one hour later, the suspects’ friends finally left the home; however, the suspects remained at the gathering.
Sometime later, the suspects allegedly started to punch and hit the guests.
Among the victims were a 20-year-old man from Voorhees NJ, a 20-year-old woman from Voorhees NJ, a 19-year-old from Berlin, and a 17-year-old from Gibbsboro. All of the victims were taken to a local hospital so that they could receive medical treatment for their injuries.
Camden County NJ police arrived at the scene and spoke with eyewitnesses, who provided descriptions of the suspects. Police later identified and located the attackers.
One suspect surrendered to law enforcement roughly one week after the incident. The other suspect was arrested in Delanco, NJ.
The suspects have been charged with several crimes, including two counts of second degree aggravated assault, two counts of third degree aggravated assault, and one count of second degree conspiracy to commit aggravated assault.
If the suspects are convicted of the most serious aggravated assault charges, they would be subject to significant penalties. A conviction for second degree aggravated assault could result in a sentence of 5-10 years in New Jersey State Prison.
After being arrested and charged, the suspects were transported to the Camden County Jail in Camden, NJ. They were each being held at the correctional facility on separate $100,000 bail amounts.
