Authorities have charged a Sayreville man with beating a longtime Asbury Park Press freelance photographer May 1 in Freehold Towship then running the man over with his vehicle.
Jamil S. Hubbard, 25, is charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose — the motor vehicle — and first-degree bias intimidation. The attack on Jerry Wolkowitz, 55, of the township took place in the parking lot of the Harding Road apartment complex where Wolkowitz lives.
Authorities said Hubbard did not know Wolkowitz. Hubbard targeted Wolkowitz because of his race, authorities said.
Freehold Township police officers and investigators from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office found that Hubbard attacked Wolkowitz from behind, punching him in the head and face then dragging him into the parking lot. Hubbard drove his gray Chevy Malibu over Wolkowitz then stole Wolkowitz’s blue Kia Forte, authorities said.
