By Travis Tormey posted in Theft Offenses on Thursday, September 26, 2013
According to police, the suspect approached a man standing at an ATM at Hudson City Savings Bank on Center Grove Road and demanded money from the man.
Sometime later, the man allegedly robbed a woman in a nearby A&P parking lot and made off with $100.00. Authorities believe that the suspect approached her when she pulled into a parking space at the A&P and opened her car door. After telling the woman that he was going to rob her, he rummaged through her purse and took the cash.
After taking the money, the suspect ran off toward Quaker Church Road.
Randolph police officers arrived on the scene after the woman called to report that she had been robbed.
The suspect was described as a 5-foot-5 man in his mid-to-late 50s. He is thin and has a long crew cut with white and black hair. At the time of the alleged robbery, he was wearing a white T-shirt and gray or light blue pants.
Robbery in New Jersey is addressed by N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1. The statute stipulates that robbery can be classified as either a first degree felony or a second degree felony, depending on the circumstances. If the suspect in this case is caught and convicted of second degree robbery, he may be sentenced to as many as ten (10) years in New Jersey State Prison.
Officers from the Randolph Police Department and the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit searched the area and were investigating the alleged robberies.
