The Atlantic City Police Department has confirmed that in the early morning hours of Thanksgiving, November 24, 2022 … an altercation at Harrah’s Resort and Casino in Atlantic City has resulted in four men being charged in the stabbing of three persons.

At 1:31 a.m., Atlantic City police officers were dispatched to the Harrah’s Resort and Casino because of a fight at The Pool at Harrah’s.

Upon, arrival, the ACPD saw an altercation in the valet area.

“An investigation conducted by Detectives Valmir Loga, Patrick Yarrow, and James Andros IV of the Atlantic City Police Department's Criminal Investigations Section led to the identification of the suspects. Wanted warrants have been authorized and issued for the arrest of the following individuals who remain fugitives at this time,” according to the ACPD press release.

The first person we will mention, who has been charged with multiple criminal offenses appears to have a direct connection to Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small.

Three members of the Atlantic City Council have confirmed that Kamal Allen, 34, of Bridgeton, is a member of Small’s anti-violence department.

That makes these criminal charges against Allen beyond ironic.
