Terror Next Door: Horrific Crime Spree against Lakewood Residents Friday
By: Yehuda Alter
A terrifying chain of crimes were perpetrated against a number of residents of the Lakewood community, leaving two of them in critical condition. According to detectives, the perpetrator was targeting orthodox Jews.
His wave of crimes began when he carjacked a vehicle and struck two pedestrians with it. He later stabbed one victim in the chest.
The suspect, who has been identified as Dion Marsh, 27 of Manchester Township, has been taken into custody, and he has been charged with three counts of attempted murder, weapons possession, and three counts of bias intimidation.
Lakewood Police Chief told the Lakewood Scoop: “in light of yesterday’s events, we have added increased uniformed and plainclothes patrol township wide. It appears that the suspect in custody was acting alone, and there is no information that suggests additional acts of violence."
