Suspect in Assault Arrested, Charged, Unable to Post Bail

Subsequent to an investigation into a January 22 assault, Arnoldo Agreda-Rodriguez was arrested at his residence on January 25. He was charged with one count of terroristic threats and one count of simple assault. Bail was set at $15,000 with a 10 percent posting option. The investigation revealed that the victim, a 48-year-old female Princeton resident, had been previously acquainted with the accused and was not randomly targeted. Mr. Agreda-Rodriguez was transported to the Mercer County Correctional Center as he was unable to post bail.

The attack occurred when the victim was walking north on Witherspoon Street near Green Street. After being struck from behind, she was brought to a vacant house at 20 Green Street where the assault continued until she escaped by jumping from a window. Police and Princeton First Aid and Rescue responded and the victim was transported to Capital Health with multiple injuries.
