Two New Jersey wrestlers sentenced for brutal attack

BELVIDERE, N.J. - Two former Centenary College wrestlers were sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to assaulting a man on campus.

Adam Swift was sentenced to five years probation, 364 days in jail which was suspended, and community service for an unknown amount of hours.

Joseph Bartolini was sentenced to 90 days in jail as well as five years probation.

The two men pleaded guilty in August.

Hackettstown police responded to the college near the Van Winkle Hall dorm just after 11 p.m. Oct. 9, 2015 for reports of an assault.

Officers found campus security attending to a victim bleeding from his face. The Hackettstown Rescue Squad transported the victim to Hackettstown Regional Medical Center, where he received treatment for "extensive injuries" that required reconstructive surgery, according to police.

Authorities charged Swift, of Hudson County, and Bartolini, of Ocean County, in connection with the attack.
