Police: Drugs, cash found at scene of Rutgers student stabbing

Authorities say they found large quantities of cash and drugs while investigating a stabbing that involved two Rutgers University students.

New Brunswick police went to a Sicard Street home around 1:20 a.m. Saturday and found a 23-year-old city man bleeding profusely from the neck. A witness told the officers that 22-year-old city resident Kevin Huang had stabbed the man, and the officers quickly found Huang on the home's second floor, naked and pacing back and forth.

The witness told police Huang and the victim had both taken LSD earlier in the evening, and at some point Huang became aggressive and removed his clothing inside an apartment.

The witness left to get help when Huang allegedly began to destroy the apartment. When the witness returned, the victim was fleeing the apartment, bleeding from the neck.

As officers secured Huang's apartment and took him into custody, they allegedly saw large quantities of drugs and paraphernalia. A subsequent search uncovered about 15 pounds of marijuana, approximately 500 bars of Xanax, a significant amount of cocaine, other unidentified pills and crystals and a significant amount of cash.

Huang was charged with attempted murder, two weapons counts and a series of drug-related offenses. It wasn't known Saturday if he had retained an attorney.

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.
