A woman ended up with seven staples in her head after a fight broke out near a club in Hoboken. The fight began as an argument in line for the ladies’ room.
At 2:13 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26, police on patrol by the PATH station came across a woman yelling and running through the street at Hudson Place with blood coming from her nose, they said. She was followed by her boyfriend who had blood on his face and shirt, according to Sgt. Det. Sam Williams.
The boyfriend told police that his girlfriend, the victim, was upstairs at the club in line for the bathroom when she got into an argument with four other women.
He brought his girlfriend downstairs, police said, and they were followed by the other four women.
Another verbal argument led to a physical altercation, the boyfriend told police, and bouncers tossed all four women and the female victim out of the club.
Police say that the four women then allegedly assaulted the victim, allegedly punching her in the face and hitting her in the back of the head with what police suspect was a high-heel shoe. The four suspects then left the scene before police arrived.
The victim’s sister, who was also at the club, told police she found an identification card belonging to one of the suspected attackers at the scene of the assault.
The sister identified the woman whose picture was on the card as one of the attackers and police said they expect to make an arrest in the case soon.
Police intend to charge the suspects with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon (the shoe).
The victim was transported to Hoboken University Medical Center, treated for a possibly broken nose, and given seven staples to close the cut on the back of her head, police said.
