M’TOWN MAN INDICTED IN STORE ATTACK

The man accused of viciously stabbing a shopper at a Bed Bath and Beyond store in Middletown last January has been indicted on an attempted murder charge by a Monmouth County grand jury, authorities reported Friday.

Tyrik Haynes, a 19-year-old township resident, has been held on $1.05 million bail since the attack, in which a 29-year-old Keansburg woman was repeatedly stabbed in the Route 35 housewares store.

Here’s the announcement from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s office:

A Monmouth County grand jury handed up a three-count indictment Friday charging a Middletown man with stabbing a woman inside the Bed, Bath and Beyond store in his hometown, announced Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.

Tyrik S. Haynes, 19, of Middletown, is charged in the indictment with one count each of first degree attempted murder, third degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and fourth degree unlawful possession of a weapon.

Haynes is accused of attempting to murder a 29-year-old Keansburg woman by stabbing her multiple times with a knife inside the Bed, Bath and Beyond store located at 1515 Route 35 northbound on Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013. Middletown Township police received multiple 911 calls around 4:09 p.m. reporting the incident inside the Bed, Bath and Beyond store.

Haynes is being lodged in the Monmouth County Correctional Institution, Freehold Township, where he has been held on $1,050,000 bail as set by Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Thomas F. Scully, J.S.C.

Despite these charges, every defendant is presumed innocent, unless and until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, following a trial at which the defendant has all of the trial rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and State law.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant Prosecutors Michael Costanzo and Melanie Falco.

Here’s the indictment: Tyrik Haynes indictment 062813
