Baristanet is reporting that a 22-year-old Glen Ridge resident turned himself in to Montclair Police yesterday in connection with the stabbing of a Verona teen on December 23 outside  a Montclair bar.

Matthew Muccia was placed under arrest and charged with aggravated assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and unlawful possession of a weapon. Bail was set at $15,000 and posted, and Muccia was later released.

The stabbing occurred at 1:55 a.m. outside the Erie Saloon on Depot Square apparently after an argument involving the Verona teen, whose identity has not been disclosed in the police report.  In daylight, the Montclair police recovered a knife, which apparently led them to Muccia.
