Throat Stabbing Ends Verbal Dispute, Police Say

One Hackettstown man hospitalized, another detained by immigration services.

A dispute between two men in Hackettstown Saturday night resulted in one being stabbed in the neck and immigration detainer, Hackettstown Police said.

Police found Nelson Granados-Oviedo, 23, of Hackettstown, with a wound to his neck when they responded to a physical dispute on Main Street, Det. Darren Tynan said.

An investigation revealed Miguel Guerra-Arias, 50, of Hackettstown, and Granados-Oviedo began arguing, which led to the older man stabbing the younger in the throat with a knife, Tynan said.

Granados-Oviedo was taken to Hackettstown Regional Medical Center and was later transported to Hackensack University Medical Center.

Guerra-Arias was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and aggravated assault with a weapon.

An immigration detainer has been put on Guerra-Arias by Immigration & Customs Enforcement, Tynan said. He was lodged in the Warren County Correctional Facility in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Not mine either LV taxpayer, but the population of HT is full of illegal / undocumented immigrants who are using the area to gain income under the table. If everyone stops using this resource they will move to where they can gain illegal employment. These people receive food stamps, WIC, Medicaid, free electric and gas, phone, inexpensive housing as long as they have an anchor baby. If they get picked up by local landscape companies to use them for day jobs they will stay. FYI Most illegals/undocumented aren't a problem, but all towns are responsible for this issue.

If they're illegal/undocumented, they're a problem. Period. Vote out the politicians who allow/encourage this.
