Stabbings in Seaside Heights put some on edge

Following two violent stabbings to start the summer season, some say they're worried about their safety in Seaside Heights.

The shore town has seen a financial boom the past two summers thanks to MTV's "Jersey Shore," which is set in Seaside Heights.

Both stabbings occurred in the same area of Sheridan Avenue. The stabbings aren't creating the best publicity for a town that makes a living from tourists.

Police say Memorial Day is the most challenging for them because it's prom season, which brings in thousands of teens.
