  LAKEWOOD – Township police arrested two township men and are continuing their investigation into an aggravated assault that took place at 9:20 p.m. on June 25 near 248 Second Street.

  The victim of the assault was Mocollie Marby, 58, who police stated was attacked by several unidentified men, one of which was reported to have been in possession of a hammer.

  Before police arrived, the suspects fled the scene on foot but a witness in the area informed the officers that they believed the suspects may have departed the area in a dark colored SUV.

  A black Lincoln Navigator was located during the course of the investigation which led to locating two men believed to be involved in the attack.

  Further details surrounding the incident are still being determined but enough information was formulated to bring charges against Gregorio Zepeda, 25 and Jose Perz Moreno, 30, both of Lakewood.

  The two men are facing 2nd degree aggravated assault against Marby. They are both lodged in the Ocean County Jail.

  Marby is expected to make a full recovery from the attack and the investigation remains ongoing and is being assisted by members of the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department.
