A juvenile has been arrested and charged with attempted murder in connection to a stabbing on the boardwalk in Ocean City over Memorial Day weekend.

The Cape May County Prosecutor's Office says on Tuesday with assistance from both the Hamilton Township and Pleasantville Police Departments, the unidentified suspect was located and taken into custody in Pleasantville.

That juvenile has been charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree aggravated assault, and related weapons offenses.

It was on Saturday night, May 25th, when the Ocean City Police Department received a 9-1-1 call regarding an assault that took place on the boardwalk.

It was later determined that a group of youngsters engaged in a fight resulting in a juvenile being stabbed in his abdomen.
