Fatal robbery near Rutgers follows shooting in New Brunswick early Saturday
NEW BRUNSWICK — A warm February day made for a violent night with a shooting and a separate robbery that turned deadly early Saturday morning.
Police are looking for a suspect who stabbed and killed a man in a robbery about 2:39 a.m. outside an apartment complex on Hamilton Street.
Elsewhere in the city, two men were shot in the legs on Spring Street between Church and Paterson streets in the downtown around 1:30 a.m., according to police spokesman Capt. J.T. Miller, who did not disclose the identities of those involved or the circumstances of the incident.
Both victims were described as being "uncooperative" with detectives, Miller said.
Meanwhile, a street robbery less than a mile from the Rutgers University campus ended with Enrique Perez Galindo being stabbed to death in a driveway, prosecutors said Saturday.
Rutgers police say the robbery occurred around 2:30 a.m. Saturday when two or three men tried to rob the victim on Hamilton Street.
The victim, who was not affiliated with the university, was stabbed with a sharp object. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
The robbers fled the area shortly after the stabbing occurred. No arrests have been made.
The prosecutor's office did not immediately return a request for comment Saturday morning.
