Man accused of stabbing co-worker at Newark Airport

A Newark man was arrested while at the same hospital where another man he allegedly stabbed was also being treated, a spokesman for the Port Authority said Monday.

Port Authority police were called to a building at Newark Liberty International Airport around 9 p.m. Friday on a report of a stabbing. The 48-year-old man told responding officers he and a co-worker, Dennis V. Jagoo, 51, had gotten into an argument before Vagoo assaulted him with a knife, Pentangtelo said. The victim managed to fight off Vagoo, who fled, Pentangelo also said.

The victim, who had suffered a puncture wound to the arm and a stomach laceration, was taken to Newark Beth Israel for treatment.

While at the hospital, police found Vagoo, who had gone there to get checked out, Pentangelo said. The knife used in the attack was also allegedly located inside Vagoo's car.

He has been charged with aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon.
