The drug epidemic is unreal in Sussex and surrounding counties. Seemingly every time I see the police blotter or local news headline, drugs always play a role in the incident. This is no different.
I caught this from the NJ HERALD:
" On Oct. 3, State Police troopers were dispatched to a report that "a black male was assaulting individuals on scene and breaking car windows." with a circular saw...
Now I ask myself , what makes a person do something so crazy??
Well.... it appears there was some sort of argument when 2 men started fighting. One got knocked out and the other kept assaulting him until he was unconscious.
Barrington Walker of Dingmans Ferry PA was charged with the following offenses:1: second-degree aggravated assault2: third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose3: third-degree criminal mischief4: third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance -- clonazepam5: third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance -- Suboxone6: fourth-degree possession of a prescription legend drug without a prescription -- gabapentin.
Two witnesses stated that Walker had initially punched the victim, who fell to the ground. After the victim fell, Walker allegedly continued assaulting the man until he lost consciousness.
Walker is expected to appear back in court on Nov. 5.
