The Hoboken Police Department has arrested a Lodi man in connection with a non-fatal stabbing on Friday night, February 9th at the McDonalds restaurant, located at 234 Washington Street.

At approximately 6:30 p.m., Sergeants Jason Falco, Edward Sellick, and Dennis Figueroa Jr., Detectives Fabian Quinones, Connor Milne, and Ryan Houghton, and Police Officers Paul Quinn, Mark Mooreman, Nicholas Losurdo, Christopher Soto, and Ramon Estrella responded to the McDonalds on reports of a street fight involving up to ten people, which resulted in a stabbing.

A Police Department press release states, “While some responding officers attended to the victim, others conducted an on-scene investigation which revealed a man, later identified as 42-year-old Kasaun Patterson of Lodi, stabbed another man during a fight outside, and fled the scene. While the investigation was underway, Patterson was observed near the scene and was arrested. He attempted to resist arrest by stiffening his body. A search incident to arrest located a folding knife in Patterson’s jacket pocket. Patterson was transported to the Hoboken Police Department and charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes, unlawful possession of a weapon, and resisting arrest. He was processed and transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility.”

Police say the victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries to his wrist and sternum.

Hoboken Police Chief Steven Aguiar stated, “I’d like to express my appreciation for the members of our department who responded quickly to this incident.  Their hard work, swift actions, courage and dedication resulted in an immediate arrest, and serves as evidence of their commitment to keeping the community safe.”
