---

A woman suffered significant blood loss after she was allegedly stabbed more than a dozen times in the back and other parts of her body by a man at Bed Bath & Beyond around 4 p.m. today.

The woman's identity was not released, but she was said to be in her 30s and shopping inside the store with her small child when she was attacked.

Middletown Township First Aid and MONOC medics transported the woman to Thorne Middle School, where she was taken by Northstar medevac to Jersey Shore University Medical Center, according to Assistant Middletown First Aid spokesperson Beth Edwards. It was reported that the patient was conscious and alert.

Port Monmouth First Aid, and fire companies from East Keansburg, Middletown, Port Monmouth and others were on standby at the landing zone. 

Middletown Police were on the scene, searching for the male suspect, who people say fled toward the apartments across Harmony Road. They reportedly have the man in custody.

Police Chief Robert Oches said at 5:30 p.m. the investigation is proceeding "very actively" and a report will be issued soon. 

A manager who answered the phone at Bed Bath & Beyond at the Route 35 plaza declined comment.

WAKE UP. NY JUST DID THE STUPIDEST THING I EVER SAW. CLIP SIZE LIMITED TO 7 ROUNDS. THE CRIMINALS ARE GOING TO HAVE 10 TO 15 IN THE AVERAGE HANDGUN AND KNOW A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN HAS 7. WHAT ABOUT THE POLICE, TOTALLY OUTGUNNED. THE GUN GRABBERS USE EVER CHANCE TO USE EVENTS LIKE SANDY HOOK TO UPSET THE PUBLIC AND DO IT IN THE NAME OF THE CHILDREN. FACT IS IF THERE WAS A CCW PERSON IN THE SCHOOL, IN THE THEATRE, IN THE COLOMBINE THINGS WOULD HAVE ENDED DIFFERENTLY. NO WEAPON ZONES IS AN INVITATION TO GO IN AND NOT BE CHALLANGED. THE PROBLEM IS PEOPLE WHO MAKE THE LAWS HAVE NO CLUE AND DO POLITICAL BS LAWS TO GAIN SOME SORT OF POLITICAL ADVANTAGE. IN EVERYTHING. SEEMS LIKE THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE OF MANY PROGRAMS ARE JUST TOTALLY UNINFORMED AND NEVER ACTUAL DID THE JOB OR HAVE A CLUE. EVEN IN BED BATH AND BEYOND THIS COULD HAVE BEEN STOPPED IF SOMEONE WAS THERE TO CHALLANGE THIS MADMAN. WE WOULD BE SPENDINGMILLIONS OF DOLLARS ON A TRIAL, JAIL, MEDICAL ETC. JUST MY OPINION

Valorie, I totally respect your opinion. but people without mental health issues should not die because they can t defend themselves. I agree, something need to be done about the mental state of our young people. Until then, they need to be stopped somehow. These things are going to happen. Weather its a gun, knife or bucket of gasoline it does'n't matter. Would you rather be in charge of your own destiny. If someone would have been able to stand up, not everyone mind you but someone things would end differently. Don't you thinkj criminals know the law. THEY DON T CARE. They are more comfortable in jail and often get off for one reason or another.

Howard, I totally agree. Taking guns away from us as if we are children and the federal mafia government is our mommy and daddy isn't going to solve anything. I know some people that are against gun ownership are sheltered and have never been in a life threatening situation, so they form an opinion of guns based off of how movies portray them as being scary, and they form their opinions based off of illogical feel-good knee-jerk emotionalism, provoked of course by Obama and the media using shootings and children to tug at the emotional heartstrings of people that lack critical thinking (ppl like mary lou, valorie, etc.). Fact is there is just as much violence today as there ever was... IT'S JUST NOW MORE EASILY REPORTABLE AND THE MASSES HAVE EASIER ACCESS TO ALL THESE NEWS STORIES. INFORMATION FLOWS A LOT MORE EFFICIENTLY NOWADAYS. Has that ever crossed some of you anti-gun idiots' minds? Grow up, anti-second amendment children.

I know you think of the federal mafia government as your protective overlord parental figures, but America and freedom is founded off of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY AND INDIVIDUALISM, meaning that we don't let a government, a small group of ppl relatively to the population, dictate how we must run our lives. I know that's a far out concept for you folks that have grown up believing that the government is our benevolent overlords, but that is not what made America what it is. Freedom means TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF, including defending yourself, ie carrying "the great equalizer", a gun.

You think an old woman has a chance physically against a male robber or car jacker? That granny's chances of her living or not sustaining physical injury are drastically increased when she has a gun. Same goes for all women. Only misogynists are anti-gun... see what I did there? I used the same type of illogical argument at the end of my paragraph as a liberal Marxist anti-gun nut would use. I used their argument style against them. These anti-gun nuts also like to spew the argument that : "I hate to live in a world where everyone is so paranoid they think they have to carry a gun." Well, I hate to live in a world where anti-gun zombies are too paranoid to feel safe around law abiding responsible gun owners. A world where anti-gun control freaks trust their government more than anyone else. It's disgusting and shows anti-gun loons don't really have much self-respect, either.
