Police in Paulsboro, Gloucester County, were surrounded by a crowd and assaulted Saturday after officers attempted to stop a fight and arrest those involved in the altercation, the department chief said in a statement released Sunday.


A “very large” group of mostly young adults and juveniles assaulted the officers who were able to stop the fight when police from neighboring departments arrived to help, according to Vincent Marino, Paulsboro’s chief of police.  

Officers arrested those involved in the fight, and additional arrests will likely be made after officials review footage from body cameras worn by police.





Cellphone recordings of the fight were posted on social media, the statement said.

The altercation was one of several that night and the department will increase the number of officers on patrol “for the near future,” the statement said.
