Two people were arrested in connection with the stabbing of a West Orange man in the Stag Hill section of Mahwah late Monday afternoon, Mahwah Police Captain Stephen Jaffe said in a release Wednesday. Kimberly Allen, 22, of Mahwah, and Tadd Mitchell, 26, of Hackensack, who have a child together, were charged after Mitchell allegedly stabbed a male acquaintance of Allen’s, police said.
According to the alleged victim, Pierreand Bernadotte of West Orange, he and Allen were in his car in front of her home on Ramapo Brae Lane when Mitchell approached them, police said. According to Jaffe, Mitchell allegedly chased Bernadotte down Stag Hill Road and then “slashed” his right hand with a razor blade when he caught up with him. The alleged incident happened at the intersection of Stag Hill Rd. and River Rd.
During a police investigation, “Allen denied involvement,” Jaffe said. “A short while later it was discovered that the razor utilized was [hidden] in the cell phone in Ms. Allen’s possession.”
Mitchell was charged with possession of a weapon, aggravated assault and tampering with evidence, Jaffe said. He is being held at the Bergen County Jail on $100,000 bail. Allen was charged with hindering the arrest of another, and was released.
