Newark Teen Pleads Guilty To Jersey Shore Stabbings, Prosecutor Says

A teenager from Newark has admitted to stabbing two Rockland County men on the Jersey Shore during a fight last year, authorities said.

Juwan Roman, 18, pleaded guilty on Thursday to two counts of aggravated assault and weapons offenses, according to Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer.

Roman's name was made public this week after he waived his right to juvenile status in Family Court. 

Roman was 17 during the 2020 assault, but he voluntarily agreed to be prosecuted as an adult, the prosecutor said.

On Sept. 7, 2020, at about 3:30 p.m., Point Pleasant police responded to 9-1-1 calls about a fight on Jenkinson’s Beach. 

Police found Alex Galdamez, 22, and William Mazariego, 18, both of West Haverstraw, New York, suffering from multiple stab wounds, Billhimer said.

Both victims were taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune for treatment.

Roman was taken into custody without incident at the scene, and has been held at the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Center ever since his arrest.
