South Orange Woman Assaulted at St. Joseph’s Rectory

| March 15, 2012

A South Orange woman who works at the rectory at St. Joseph's Church in Maplewood was assaulted on Wednesday morning by an intruder in her basement office.

While the suspect did not have a weapon, he viciously beat the woman. Family friends report that she suffered traumatic injuries that required surgery.

Maplewood Police Chief Robert Cimino confirmed the incident this afternoon after a press conference in Newark announcing the arrest of a suspect in a double homicide. Cimino characterized the crime as an assault and reported that no weapon was involved. He noted that he had not yet been fully briefed on the crime due to time he was spending on the investigation of the double homicide — an anomaly in Maplewood, which has not seen a homicide in 18 months.
