The victim, a 37 year old adult male from Newark, called the police and reported that he has been stabbed outside of the bar on Trimboli Way. Upon arrival, Officers located the victim, covered in blood with lacerations on his head. The victim was transported (and later released) to a local hospital for his non-life threatening injuries.

Officers responded to a possible residential burglary in progress on Trout Court. The reporting party described two juveniles coming out of his neighbor's home with a bunch of bags; the suspects were not known to the address. An officer arrived and began to search for the possible suspects and victim address. As the officers approached an address on Trout Court, three large pit bulls forced open the gate and charged the officers. The sergeant and two officers retreated and the dogs aggressively pursued the officers. During the attack one officer fired two shots to protect himself and others in the area. Two of the dogs ran away from the home and the other ran back to the backyard. One of the two dogs was hit by the gunfire. No other persons were injured. The two dogs are still at large as of this writing.
