Local man arrested for aggravated assault

A Highland Park resident was arrested for stabbing two University students Saturday morning soon after midnight.

The Rutgers University Police Department arrested suspect Tyrell Brown, 21, for allegedly stabbing two males between 18 and 24 College Avenue during what officials determined an altercation, Rutgers University Police Department Lt. Richard Dinan said.

The students sustained non life-threatening injuries, but one male required surgery at St. Peter's University Hospital, Dinan said.

Brown, who is not affiliated with the University, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of unlawful possession of a weapon and one count of possession of marijuana. He is being held on $35,000 bail at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center.
