Police said the woman had previously been reported missing in Robbinsville and family members were concerned for her welfare.

Bordentown and Robbinsville police officers identified the room in which the woman was staying and attempted to make contact with her, but while speaking to her from outside the room the officers heard the woman collapse and immediately entered the room to render aid, according to police.

Once inside the hotel room, the officers observed injuries to the woman’s neck, which were determined to have been self-inflicted by a knife, police said.

Bordentown EMS and paramedics treated the woman at the scene and transported her to the Capital Health Trauma Center.

The woman is currently being treated for her self-inflicted wounds.
