A 52-year-old Jersey City man has been accused of stabbing his 23-year-old girlfriend and baby mama in the face with a key while driving. Juan T. Irizarry has been charged with aggravated assault and two weapons offenses, for allegedly stabbing the girlfriend while their kids were in the car yesterday afternoon.

The girlfriend told police that the family was driving in their van when she and Irizarry had an argument, which escalated until he began stabbing her in the face with the key. The couple's two children, a 3-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter, were in the backseat the whole time; the assault ended when the girlfriend jumped out of the van.

Police found the van soon after, with the children still inside "disheveled and very scared, crying and also soaked with water or sweat." Police believe that Irizarry was involved in two collisions after the girlfriend jumped out of the car, and when they got to him, he appeared to be very intoxicated, and was taken to Jersey City Medical Center for treatment. The girlfriend was "unable to complete or seek a restraining order," because she was "too intoxicated to comprehend her rights," and was also taken to the hospital for treatment. The kids were also taken their for evaluation, and a representative of the state Division of Youth and Family Services responded to the hospital.
