Princeton Borough Police Blotter for Oct. 22

A Princeton man who was carrying a knife allegedly attacked two other men just before 11 p.m. last night on Witherspoon Street. Police responded to reports of a fight in progress and found two men  outside a home on the 100 block of Witherspoon Street who said they had been physically attacked by a third man. While they were talking with police, the man exited the house carrying a 13-inch kitchen knife.  After seeing the officers, the man turned around and fled back into the home.  Officers pursued him and were able to grab him. The man then threw the knife through an open door inside the residence, police said.  He was identified as Juan Solares-Samoya, 51, a resident of the house. Solares-Samoya was arrested, charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, and released after posting $500 bail, police said.

A student at Princeton High School fell backward on her chair, hit her head and had to be transported to the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro this morning, a school official said. While full details were not available, it sounds as if the student suffered a concussion and will make a full recovery

Editor’s Note: We posted the high school item because we received a few calls  and emails this a.m. from parents wondering why there was an ambulance outside the high school.
