Police arrived in response to a 9-1-1 call to Rodgers’ residence on Pine Grove Avenue yesterday, August 21, 2017 at approximately 5:47 p.m.
Upon arrival, officers found the suspect’s 61-year-old father suffering from multiple slash wounds to his head and body. The injuries were a result of allegedly being struck by the son multiple times with a machete. The father was air lifted to Cooper University Hospital, where he is currently receiving treatment.
Under the recent Criminal Justice Reform rules, the court may order Rodgers be detained without bail or released with conditions.
All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
