WILDWOOD – A fight outside a Pacific Avenue business in Wildwood, and an assault inside, resulted in two being issued summonses and two others being lodged in the county jail early Sunday, Oct. 29.
Wildwood Police Department officers responded to 2708 Pacific Ave., Wildwood, at around 1 a.m., Oct. 29, for the report of a disturbance in progress. When officers arrived, they found a large crowd across the street from the business surrounding individuals who were fighting.
Mutual aid was requested from the North Wildwood and West Wildwood police departments to help disperse the large crowd. The two allegedly engaged in a fight were identified as Jezahlia Mercado, 22, of Villas, and Kelsey Bortles, 30, of Woodbine. Both were issued a summons for disorderly conduct and released.
However, police learned that in a separate incident someone had sustained multiple lacerations to the face and head because of being physically attacked inside the establishment. The victim was treated on scene by members of the Wildwood Fire/Rescue squad and was ultimately flown to AtlantiCare Medical Center-Atlantic City due to the seriousness of her injuries.
The Wildwood Police Department Detective Division executed a court authorized search warrant at 2708 Pacific Ave., where surveillance video was collected and submitted as evidence. Two suspects in the incident were positively identified as Molly Doyle, 25, of Vineland, and Brianna Levine, 30, of Woodbine. Doyle and Levine were charged with second-degree conspiracy and second-degree aggravated assault. Both were incarcerated at the Cape May County Correctional Facility.
The Wildwood Police Department recognized the efforts of the North Wildwood Police Department and West Wildwood Police Department for their assistance during the course of this investigation.
