Montclair Police were called to Miller Street Monday night on a report of a stabbing. The victim, a 48-year-old Montclair man who had already been transported to the hospital by relatives, was suffering from multiple stab wounds to the abdomen.
The suspect, identified as Donald “Ibn” Silvera, 40, had fled the scene on foot prior to police arrival.
A 16-year-old male at the scene was found to have a small laceration on his right arm, also allegedly caused by Silvera. This injury was treated at the scene by medical personnel.
This incident reportedly stemmed from an argument over a bicycle which had been stolen from the 16-year-old victim earlier that date. The adult victim is currently listed as stable.
Silveria, who is currently at large, is charged with three counts of Aggravated Assault, Weapons offenses, and Child Endangerment. This incident is still under investigation.
Anyone having information regarding the whereabouts of Donald “Ibn” Silvera are urged to contact the Montclair Police immediately (973-744-1234). Silvera (pictured) is 40 years old, 5’6” in height and 160 pounds.
