A New Jersey man was taken to Cooper University Hospital after allegedly being stabbed by his roommate several times. According to the Burlington Township Police Department, two roommates had an argument and then, after one man went to take a shower, his roommate followed him into the bathroom and allegedly stabbed him several times. The police found the victim on the bathroom floor and suffering from wounds and lacerations to the face, chest, hands, and arms. The victim received medical treatment at the scene and was then transported to the hospital and admitted in critical condition. The suspect reportedly fled the scene, but he eventually turned himself in and he now faces charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

In addition to the criminal charges against the attacker in this case, the events may also lead to a domestic violence restraining order because, under New Jersey’s domestic violence laws, household members fall within the protected parties of the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act (“PDVA”). Specifically, N.J.S.A. 2C:25-19(d) sets forth that a victim of domestic violence is defined as any person who is 18 years of age or older or who is an emancipated minor and who has been subjected to domestic violence by a spouse, former spouse, or any other person who is a present or former household member; any person, regardless of age, who has been subjected to domestic violence by a person with whom the victim has a child in common, or with whom the victim anticipates having a child in common if one of the parties is pregnant; and any person who has been subjected to domestic violence by a person with whom the victim has had a dating relationship.
