Woman Reportedly Assaulted on Beach in Ortley Beach

Police seeking information on incident near Seaside Heights boundary

Toms River police are investigating an assault that reportedly occurred on the beach in Ortley Beach early Saturday morning.

A man called police at 3 a.m. Saturday to report that his wife needed help. Police responded to the call on the oceanfront near Coolidge Avenue, where the woman, a 47-year-old from Hunterdon County, reported she was assaulted by a man she encountered on the beach near the Seaside Heights boundary.

The woman told police she had gone for a walk on the beach looking for shells after she and her husband had returned from a bar in Seaside Heights. 

The woman was taken to Community Medical Center, Toms River, for treatment.

Anyone with information can contact Detective Chris Fluck at 732-349-0150 ext. 1222.

@ jan, while I do agree with what you said she lacked some common sense here. A 3 PM walk to look for shells? seems weird. I do hope she is OK.

I don't really think its fair to blame the woman or make fun of the situation. Sure, anyone with a clear and sober head would know that a 3am stroll alone on ANY beach would be a bad idea, but still nobody deserves to be attacked by someone. And if the story is accurate, then there is someone out there who attacks women....and may do it again.
