“During the beginning of June, a number of neighborhoods in northern New Jersey experienced a series of strong-arm break-ins that appeared to have been committed by the exact same person,” Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella stated in a statement.

The crimes consist of: A break-in with a weapon on June 6 when the suspect entered a filling station on Grand Street in Paterson, pushed a staff member aside and took $500 from the register prior to getting away. The suspect forgot his hat at the scene. It was referred to as a gray, snap-back hat with a symbol of New Jersey on it, according to an arrest affidavit.

The victim was required to a regional health center with a dislocated shoulder, cops stated.
  • A robbery June 7 in Parsippany-Troy Hills where the suspect struck one victim, took $500 and after that dragged a 2nd victim with his car while leaving. Both victims were injured, police stated.
  • A break-in June 7 at a Route 46 gas station in Parsippany, where the suspect strolled into the attendant's booth while the victim was counting cash, pressed his head down and grabbed money. After a short struggle with the victim and the victim's colleague, the robber got away in his car on Route 46 East.
