Stabbings mar Cherry Hill night out

Posted: April 01, 2013

A Sicklerville man pulled a knife during a brawl at a night club in Cherry Hill, stabbing three patrons and a security guard early Sunday morning, police said.

Daniel Skillings, 32, of the unit block of Hampshire Road, has been charged with aggravated assault with injury, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose.

The fight broke out at 2:09 a.m. at Top Dog America's Bar & Grill, 2310 West Marlton Pike, when two patrons began to fight on the second-floor dance floor.

Security guards attempted to break up the fight, but other patrons jumped in and Skillings pulled a knife.

Skillings stabbed one of the security guards in the left leg, police said. He was taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden for treatment and released, as was a bouncer who suffered broken ribs.

Details were unavailable on the injuries to three patrons who, police said, were treated at Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County and released.

Guards eventually stopped the fight and disarmed Skillings, police said. He was remanded to Camden County Jail in lieu of $212,500 bail.
