Chad Andresen, 18, of Beachwood.
TOMS RIVER — A Beachwood teen wanted by police in connection with an assault on a township man and his mother has turned himself in, police confirmed.
Officer Ralph Stocco, a spokesman with the Toms River Police Department, said in an email that Chad Andresen turned himself into a law enforcement agency in Monmouth County — but he did not know which agency.
Andresen, 18, is facing aggravated assault charges in connection with the assault of a 38-year-old Toms River woman and her 18-year-old son early Friday morning.
At approximately 1 a.m., police and medical personnel responded to the area of Haines Road and Cedar Drive for a report of a fight.
Police previously said that Andreson sucker-punched an 18-year-old man in the head, knocking him to the ground. The man received a neck injury when his head hit the cement and was also knocked unconscious.
The victim’s mother then tried to intervene but was punched and thrown to the ground by John Shevlino, 18, of Beachwood, police said. The woman was then kicked in her face, knocking her out and leaving her with a broken jaw, police said.
Investigators determined that those involved knew each other and had been part of a larger group that was drinking for much of the day in Bayville. They left Bayville around 11:30 p.m. Thursday and continued drinking near the Toms River.
Andreson and Shevlino fled the area, police said. Shevlino was tracked down and arrested, police said. He was charged with aggravated assault and is being held on $2,500 bail.
Andreson was also charged with aggravated assault but remained at large.
