Paramus juvenile charged with stabbing man

A 17-year-old Paramus juvenile was arrested Sept. 27 for allegedly stabbing his mother's former boyfriend in the neck when the man entered his home.
On Sept. 26 at 6:14 p.m., Paramus Police responded to a home on Edstan Way in reference to a call from the juvenile, according to Chief Christopher Brock. The juvenile reported that a man had attempted to "break into my house," and after a scuffle he stabbed the man with a knife, which was recovered at the scene. When police arrived, they found the man lying unconscious on the floor of the house and bleeding from multiple wounds to his neck and abdomen.
The man had been asked by the teenager to leave but refused, Brock said. A struggle then ensued, and the juvenile stated that the man put him in a headlock and that he stabbed the man in an effort to defend himself.
The man formerly had a dating relationship with the juvenile's mother, who was not home at the time of the incident, according to Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli.
Aid was rendered and the victim was transported to Hackensack University Medical Center for treatment. He underwent surgery and currently remains in critical condition, according to Molinelli.
The teenager was charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon (knife) for an unlawful purpose, both as a juvenile. He was released into the custody of his mother.
The arrest was the result of a joint investigation between the Paramus Police Department and Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Major Crime Unit, Molinelli said.
