Brick police on Monday released a video of a burglary suspect wanted for breaking into a township home and stabbing the resident there with an unknown object.

The department also released some additional photos of the suspect.

Police are still investigating the incident, first reported by Shorebeat on Sunday, which took place Saturday afternoon at about 4 p.m. in the area of Stephen Road and Burnt Tavern Road, Sgt. Neal Pedersen said.

A homeowner, Pedersen said, confronted a burglar at which point the suspect stabbed him in the leg with an unknown object. The suspect then fled in a dark colored, medium-sized sport utility vehicle with a NJ partial tag of “Y8L-.” The vehicle was described as having white or chrome on the bottom portion. The suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s, with a thin build, approximately 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9 in height.

Anyone who can identify the suspect or the vehicle is being asked to call Detective Barnes at 732-262-4611 or, for immediate assistance, the main police number at 732-262-1100.
