Two Jersey City residents arrested for stabbing at party in Hoboken

HOBOKEN — On Sunday Dec. 4 two people were stabbed at a party at 38 Jackson St. in downtown Hoboken, according to a media release from the Hoboken Police Department.
One victim sustained puncture and slash wounds to his shoulder, stomach, and wrist while the other had a “deep laceration to his left arm.”
The injuries were not considered life threatening and were treated on scene and at Jersey City Medical Center.
The stabbing allegedly occurred when a fight broke out at the party and a group was being escorted out. It was at this time that one of the men from the group began to lunge and stab the victims and flee the scene.
Jersey City Police Department helped arrest Joaquin Davis, 20, who allegedly resisted arrest and was transported to the Hoboken Police Department.
Davis was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, and possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes.
Det. William Collins and Det. Michael Miranda identified Yolmin Brito, 22, as the other man allegedly involved in the stabbing.
Brito was charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, and “several outstanding warrants for Robbery and CDS offenses out of Bayonne and Jersey City.”
The media release notes that the party was a “pop-up party” in which planners invites attendees through word of mouth and social media. These unregulated parties “become bigger than planned” and occur in lofts or warehouses where alcohol consumption and capacity aren’t monitored.
This puts “everyone in attendance at risk along with fire and police personnel,” said the media release.
It warns, “Anyone hosting this type of event would be in violation of local ordinances and face fines and potential civil liability.”
