The police investigation into what happened continues

Police received a 911 call at 3:31 a.m. Monday, reporting the stabbing. When patrols arrived at 56 2nd Street in the West Keansburg section of the township, they came upon a large party at the house, the chief said.

Four people at the party were arrested for various offenses including warrants from other jurisdictions, but no arrests have been made at this time in reference to the stabbing, Broderick said.
