A southern New Jersey man faces aggravated assault charges stemming from what authorities say was an unprovoked attack on a Delaware River Port Authority officer last month.

Kelvin Nunez of Oaklyn also faces weapons charges in connection with the Aug. 17 incident in Camden.

Authorities say the 27-year-old Nunez saw officer Joe McCalla in a parked, marked police vehicle. At the time, McCalla was patrolling the nearby PATCO speed-line parking lot with his driver's side window open.

Nunez allegedly punched McCalla in the face and ran off. Authorities say Nunez also had a knife in his hand, but the officer wasn't cut by the blade.

A Woodlynne Police officer recognized Nunez after seeing video of the suspect. Nunez was arrested Friday and is being held on $87,000 bail.
