UPDATE: Homeless Man Charged In Seaside Stabbing, Robbery

Seaside Heights has arrested a homeless Hispanic male who is accused of stabbing a 19-year-old North Jersey man in the right thigh and robbing three women, Detective Steven Korman said.

Joeuvany Moreno Ramirez, 21, last known address Ponce, Puerto Rico, was lodged in the Ocean County Jail in Toms River on $750,000 cash bail, Korman said.

Ramirez has been charged with four counts of robbery, one count of aggravated assault with a weapon, and one count of possession of a weapon, he said.

The incident happened at 9:30 p.m. Monday night at the intersection of Sumner Avenue and the Boulevard, Korman said.

The man who was stabbed had left the car with the three women and gone into a local store to make a purchase. While he was gone, Ramirez approached the 19-year-old driver and demanded her cell phone and money, Korman said.

He then went to an 18-year-old and did the same. When the man returned from the store, he saw Ramirez talking to a 16-year-old girl, he said.

Ramirez then went up to the man and demanded his phone and money. The man refused and Ramirez stabbed him in the right thigh, Korman said.

The Ocean County Sheriff's Department's K-9 unit and the Ocean County Prosecutor's Criminalistics Investigative Unit began searching and located Ramirez in a Barnegat Avenue residence, he said.

Why are the thugs always looking for a phone, along with the money? Who do they need to call that's so important?

Well said Gerard L. and so true. Can't wait for my condo in Ortley Beach to be rebuilt (with my own money) from super storm Sandy so I can put it on the market and get the hell out of here.

Back in the day Seaside was nice, wonder what happened? IMO I think under age drinking/ drugs has a lot to do with this.
