Toms River Man Indicted in Threats

Recent grand jury indictments

A Toms River man who told a woman he "stabbed people before" has been indicted by an Ocean County grand jury on three counts of making terroristic threats.

Keith T. Novajovsky of Toms River also was indicted on counts of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon by a convicted person in the Aug. 28 incident in Toms River, according to the indictment.

The indictment says Novajovsky threatened Jennifer Lake with a knife, saying "Don't tempt me, I've stabbed people before." He also threatened Keith Novajovsky and Bernadette Novajovsky, saying he would "get a gun and put a bullet in one of them," according to the indictment.

According to the indictment, Novajovsky was convicted in Monmouth County in June 1990, which disqualifies him from being permitted to own or possess a weapon.

Novajovsky posted $50,000 bail, with no 10 percent option, on Oct. 27, with the bail condition that he have no contact with the victims.
