Jersey Grand Jury Rakes Nazi Rioters

October 30, 1934
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Essex County Grand Jury was on record today as condemning the riots last spring between Nazi and anti-Nazi groups in the adjoining suburb of Irvington.

The presentment states that no indictments were returned because assailants could not be identified by witnesses who testified before the Grand Jury. A total of seventy-four witnesses were examined.

It was learned, however, that three indictments were returned against persons who were involved in fights here immediately after the rioting in Irvington.
