Flying the Coop! Aggravated Assault Defendant Being Sought after Fleeing During Jury Deliberations

Flying the Coop! Aggravated Assault Defendant Being Sought after Fleeing During Jury Deliberations

A Bergen County man is being sought by authorities after fleeing while a jury deliberated on his trial for aggravated assault, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park announced Friday (March 20).

Angel Serpa Rodriguez, 35, of Fort Lee was convicted Wednesday of second-degree aggravated assault, third-degree aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and third- and fourth-degree weapons charges. Rodriguez had been free on $85,000 bail during his five-day trial.

The date was March 3, 2011 when Rodriguez followed a man outside of Freitas Tavern on 2nd Avenue in Elizabeth and waited until the man was alone, according to Union County Assistant Prosecutor Meghan Tomlinson, who prosecuted the case. Rodriguez then broke a glass he had been carrying and slashed the man in the face with a jagged piece of glass, Tomlinson said.

The victim made his way back inside the tavern, at which time Rodriguez pursued him and stabbed him repeatedly in the head before a group of patrons pulled him away. Rodriguez was arrested shortly thereafter and indicted in July 2011.
