Teen questioned in connection with attack on serviceman

A 16-year-old Seaside Heights boy was questioned about the assault of a 28-year-old serviceman from Newport News, Va.   Police were dispatched at 12:59 a.m. Sunday  after calls began pouring in that a man was lying face down on the ground.  Police found a manect bleeding, and near him were three other individuals, a male and two females.  The victim was unconscious for a period of time and was incoherent when he did regain consciousness  First Aid treated him at the scene he was transported to the trauma unit at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.

Investigators were told an argument ensued in Seaside Heights but that it ended three blocks away in Seaside Park.  While the three unnamed witnesses say the 16-year-old threw the first punch and ultimately beat victim unconscious, officials said the teen claims the serviceman taunted him and grabbed him by the throat.
The 16-year-old was interviewed with a parent present and subsequently processed at the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Center in Toms River.
No charges have been filed.  Story is here.

High bail for four men charged with making threats

I feel like this story is missing something.  Ronald Agosto, 24, Sotirius Haralampidis, 25, Klaus Jaeschke, 25, all of North Bergen, and Mario Guidz Cabassa, 33, of West New York have been charged with making terroristic threats, a third degree offense.  If they have no record, they should get probation.  Nevertheless, they were all being held in lieu of $100,000 each at the Ocean County Jail in Toms River which is a ridiculous bail; again, unless I am missing something.

The whole case is just that the four men allegedly followed an arcade worker out of the arcade and down the street, voicing threats and making threatening hand gestures. That is it.  Most of the time, you can assault someone and get a bail lower than $5o,ooo.  Hopefully, all four men will get good attorneys right away to file a bail motion.
