Newark NJ Man Arrested After Allegedly Robbing Montclair Restaurant

Montclair NJ Robbery SuspectPolice recently arrested a Newark man who allegedly robbed a Montclair NJ restaurant customer.

According to police, the 49-year-old suspect committed the robbery at the CARS Restaurant on Valley Road in Montclair, New Jersey.

The suspect reportedly walked into the eatery and approached the cashier. He then allegedly demanded money from the cash register. When the employee told the suspect that he was unable to open the register, the suspect reportedly showed the employee a silver handgun.

Authorities said that the suspect eventually abandoned his attempt to get money from the cash register and instead targeted a male customer who was at the store for a take-out order. The suspect allegedly took $107 from the customer before fleeing the scene on foot.

According to witnesses, the suspect was wearing a ski mask at the time of the robbery. However, investigators were still able to figure out the identity of the suspect. New Jersey state police officers eventually caught the suspect in Irvington NJ and placed him under arrest.

The suspect will probably face charges for armed robbery. If the suspect is convicted, he could be subject to significant penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1, armed robbery is a first degree criminal offense and is punishable by a sentence of 10–20 years in New Jersey State Prison.

Additionally, the suspect will likely face weapons charges because police allege that he was in possession of a handgun when he was arrested.
