He recovered in hospital after a fight broke out

A Rutgers student was stabbed in the back in the early hours of this morning after a “physical altercation” involving a man with a top-knot.

Our reporter happened to be on the scene at the hospital after a senior was run over on Easton Avenue – the stabbing victim was in a stable condition after a fight broke out at 18 College Avenue.

New Brunswick Police have described one of the perpetrators as a white man with a beard and a man-bun.
