(ASBURY PARK PRESS) MIDDLETOWN — A Keansburg woman was stabbed multiple times Thursday at a Bed Bath & Beyond store on Route 35, and authorities say the suspect is a man who is charged with torturing a cat to its death in late December.

The victim is reported by CBS New York 2 to be Kerri Dalton, 29. The website cited her family as its source. She was in critical, but stable condition, in an area hospital, authorities said.

The accused attacker, Tyrik S. Haynes, 19, of Middletown, was placed in custody after township police responded about 4:10 p.m. to multiple 911 calls at the store located at 1515 Route 35 North in the township, said Charles Webster, public information officer for the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.
