Passaic NJ law enforcement is searching for suspects in a violent attack outside a local go-go bar that resulted in three people sustaining significant physical injuries.
The incident started around 3:00 a.m. with a verbal altercation in front of the Palace Gentlemen’s Club, which is located on Main Avenue in Passaic, NJ. According to police officials, several people exited the strip club and got into a heated altercation.
The verbal argument soon became a physical argument, with one person allegedly using a handgun to shoot a victim and two people allegedly used knives to stab or slash other victims.
After the violent attack, the three victims were taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, NJ so that they could receive urgent medical care for their injuries.
Passaic NJ police detectives are investigating the assault and attempting to identify the men responsible. The suspects reportedly fled the scene of the assault in a white SUV.
If authorities are able to identify and apprehend the suspects, the men would probably be subject to serious criminal charges such as aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
