Youth Accused in Stabbing at Barnegat Football Game

Barnegat youth suffered a stab wound to his left bicep.

A Barnegat youth was arrested and charged for allegedly stabbing another township youth, following a fight at the Barnegat-Red Bank football game at Barnegat High School on November 9 around 8:20 p.m.

Barnegat police said they responded to a report of a fight and found the victim, an 18-year-old male from Barnegat, had suffered a stab wound to his left bicep during a fight with a 17-year-old Barnegat male.

The confrontation had begun under the bleachers at the game before both parties agreed to continue the fight on Bengal Boulevard, near the entrance to the school.

The accused fled the area prior to officer's arrival, however, officers were able to identify the accused with the help of the victim and witnesses.

At 9:40 p.m., Sgt. Jason Carroll observed the accused juvenile along with Kyle Greenhalgh, 18, of Barnegat, and a 16-year-old male Barnegat juvenile in the area of the Beverly Park on Beverly Drive in Barnegat.

Upon identifying himself as a police officer and ordering the three to stop, the accused and Greenhalgh allegedly fled on foot. Sgt. Carroll pursued both subjects who ran toward the creek that runs behind Beverly Park.

As the two subjects separated, Sgt. Carroll continued to run down the accused in the stabbing. At the same time, Ptl. Christopher Ebert arrived on scene and pursued Greenhalgh. Sgt. Carroll was able to apprehend the accused in the creek a distance away from the park.

Ptl. Ebert apprehended Greenhalgh on the banks of the creek. Upon returning to the park, the officers found the 16-year-old juvenile had remained but was intoxicated and was uncooperative with officers.

During a protective patdown search of the 16-year-old, Ptl. Nicholas Dapuzzo located the knife allegedly used in the stabbing, police said. Ptl. Dapuzzo also found the 16-year-old to be in possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana.

The 17-year-old accused in the stabbing was charged with 2nd degree aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, and resisting arrest. He was lodged in the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Center.

Greenhalgh was charged with obstructing the administration of law and was released pending a court date.The 16-year-old juvenile was charged with possession of marijuana  less than 50 grams and was released to a guardian.

The victim of the stabbing was transported to Southern Ocean Medical Center before being transferred to Jersey Shore Medical Center.
