Metuchen police confirmed no one was attacked at the train station over the weekend, contradicting a social media post that circulated on borough-related sites.
“We have fielded hundreds of calls about the post,” said Metuchen Sgt. Arthur Flaherty. “It is absolutely not true.”
According to the post, which appears to have been deleted, a man named Daniel Bonet was beaten and robbed by three people in masks.
