The incident took place the night of Aug. 5 at the intersection of Route 88 and Barb Lane, police said.

The victim, described as a 39-year-old white male, told police that he had been in a fight with suspects who were operating an Acura sedan. The Acura was described as being dark in color, with tinted windows and a New York registration.

The incident began as the vehicles were travelling west on Route 88 in Point Pleasant towards Brick. The victim said that the driver of Acura was yelling at him and his family while driving aggressively.

“This continued until the vehicles reached the intersection of Route 88 and Barb Lane,” Sgt. Larry Petrola said.

At the intersection, the driver of the Acura exited his vehicle and approached the victim’s vehicle. The victim then exited his vehicle and a fight ensued on the side of the road, initially just involving the drivers of both vehicles.

The driver of the Acura was then joined by the two other occupants of the Acura in the assault, Petrola said.

During the fight, the driver of the Jeep was stabbed with what was described as a small knife.

The occupants of the Acura then fled back to their vehicle and left the area on Jack Martin Boulevard towards Route 70. The victim then lost sight of the Acura.

According to police, the victim was treated and released from Ocean Medical Center for lacerations to his head and elbow.

Detectives Timothy McCarthy and Mark Byrne were able to recover a short video clip which was taken by a passerby and released to Shorebeat. The clip shows the end of the altercation leading up to the suspect’s running back to their vehicle.

The Brick Township Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects, who are described as two black males and one black female, who are shown in the video wearing light colored shirts.

Anyone who believes they may have seen the suspect vehicle, or recognize anyone else involved, is being asked to contact Det. Timothy McCarthy in the Brick Township Police Detective Bureau at 732-262-1169. They can also contact the Brick Township Police directly at 732-262-1100.

    Have we become so politically correct that you can’t describe the assailants? When viewing the video on high resolution you can tell they are black the victim white. Possible hate crime instead of road rage?

    • The races of the victim and the suspects are both included in the story.

      Hate crime, probably not. Just more inner city thugs bringing their style of life to the jersey shore.

    One of drivings biggest problem is common courtesy… there are some people who do not want anyone to get in front of them; and if someone does happen to get in front of them and is PERCEIVED to be intentional, then people just lose their freakin minds.. they just lose it. They want some kind of “payback” by any means necessary. These are the people who will tailgate the car in front of them by mere inches, if you happen to signal that you want to move into that lane, as if moving into another lane is a personal slight and infringement upon someones personal space…. they don’t want you to get in front of them… behind them? no problem.. infront? NO WAY IN HELL…. they’d rather be a murderer than have someone get in front.

    I have to ask…..why such violence by young blacks.

    Just gorillas in the mist. Better to try and resist the invasion of the Lakewood orthodox cult. They own our Brick Reservoir. They own our Windward Beach. Who cares if a few NY smokes ride through Brick. Keep the parasites from Lakewood out.

    So people now film instead of helping?
    A few upstanding citizens could have stopped this.

    A BUNCH OF COWARDS!

  • Derwood Tano

    If the white citizen had been properly armed, there’d be 3 less thugs roaming our streets. Black lives…?

    Race relations in our Country have deteriorated greatly since we elected a black president.

    blacks doing only what they know.

      not a fair statement. But what is fair is to say that were the victims Black or Jewish , the marches would start and protests. This would still be in the news
