On June 25th at approximately 4pm, Officer Jonathan Pederson responded to the area of Congress Street to investigate a reported Robbery, as reported yesterday.
“Upon arrival, the victim, a 28 year old Lakewood man, stated he was speaking to two males in the area of Laurel Avenue. At some point during the conversation, the males noticed that he had “a lot” of money on him,” Staffordsmith said.
“One of the males struck him in the head with an unknown object and took approximately $3,000 from the victim before the both fled the area on foot.”
Further investigation led to the discovery that the males got into a white vehicle a short distance away. That vehicle was located in front of a Laurel Avenue home a short time later.
As a result, Mr. Jackson has been charged with Robbery and has a $10,000 warrant for his arrest.
The second suspect has not been identified at this time. Anyone with information is urged to contact Det. Joseph Gregg at 732-363-0200 ext. 5341. [TLS]
