MAN GETS BEAT UP IN HIS SLEEP
September 7, 2017
Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III, announced the indictment of Daniel
Berger, age 30, of Stewartsville, NJ. On August 31, 2017, Mr. Berger was indicted by a
Hunterdon County Grand Jury for one count of 2nd degree Aggravated Assault.
On June 17, 2017, troopers from the New Jersey State Police Perryville Barracks responded to a
Bloomsbury home for the report of an assault. The victim of the assault advised the troopers that he was attacked by Mr. Berger while he was sleeping. The victim suffered bruising to his face and two
missing teeth. Mr. Berger was later arrested at his residence and charged with Aggravated Assault.
The filing of a criminal complaint is merely a step in the criminal justice process. The defendant
is presumed innocent until the matter is resolved in a court of law.
