2 Stabbed by Teens in Westgate After Being Confronted for Stealing Vehicle[PHOTOS & VIDEO]

Two men were stabbed on motzei shabbos in West Gate after being attacked by a group of teenagers, several of whom stole one of the victim’s vehicle.

Sources tell Lakewood Alerts that one of the victims had identified a teenage boy who had stolen his vehicle last week. When he approached Lakewood Police, officers told him that it’s an issue that has been plaguing the area for a long time, but there’s not much they can do because they’re juveniles.

With no help from the police department, the victim gathered a small group of people to confront the car stealing suspects over the incident directly. When they did so, one of the teenagers grabbed a knife and stabbed 2 people.

Both stabbing victims are expected to be okay.

The Lakewood Police Department has taken one suspect into custody and has taped off the area for an investigation.

  1. Let us just remember that these things are extremely uncommon by us, that is why it’s making waves. In other places, there can be a large slew of terrible crimes, and they’re hardly reported.
