Princeton Borough Police Blotter: One Brawl with a Fork, Another with a Knife

An argument between two employees  Nov. 10 at Tandori Bite, the popular Indian restaurant on Witherspoon Street, allegedly led to a fight, a death threat and an attempted stabbing by fork. Tandori employee Surjit Singh, 33, of Westampton, was charged with simple assault, terroristic threats, and unlawful weapons possession because of the incident.  Police received a call about a fight in progress and went to the restaurant. Police wer called to the scene and their investigation found that the Singh allegedly pushed the victim to the ground, threatened to kill him and then attempted to stab him with a fork.  The victim shielded himself with his hands and his right hand was cut. Singh was released. His court date is Nov. 19.

A woman allegedly brandished a knife and attacked a man on John Street near Clay Street Nov. 9. Princeton Borough and Princeton Township patrols responded to reports about the attack and discovered that Dyasia Harrell, 19, of Trenton wielded a knife and  had allegedly threatened to kill the male victim. The victim and Harrell knew each other. At some point the victim and Harrell fought over the knife and both suffered minor lacerations to their hands.  The victim refused medical treatment and the accused was transported to the Princeton Medical Center and released. Harrell was charged with aggravated assault, making terrorist threats, and unlawful weapons possession. Her bail was set at $10,000. Her court date is Nov. 19.
