UNION CITY — Two 15-year-olds and two 16-year-olds are charged in connection with the fatal stabbing of a city teen.

Charges against the juveniles suggest that 15-year-old Allen Flores was the victim of an armed robbery in the area of 40th Street and New York Avenue on the evening of Dec. 20. He was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead from an apparent stab wound.

A second juvenile was treated for an apparent stab wound and released.

The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office announced on Thursday that a fourth juvenile — a 16-year-old male from Union City — had been charged with armed robbery and weapons charges in connection with the incident.

Three additional minors — a 16-year-old from Union City, and a 15-year-old female and 15-year-old male from Jersey City — were previously arrested and charged.

Weapons charges for three of the individuals relate to a "stick." The other defendant is charged with the unlawful use and possession of a knife.

According to authorities, Allen was the city's first homicide victim of 2022. An altercation led to the stabbings, authorities say.
