Police Look for Suspect in South Orange Burglary, Assault

South Orange Burglary ChargesPolice in South Orange NJ are searching for a man accused of committing a burglary and attacking a resident.

The suspect allegedly broke into a home located on Ward Place in South Orange NJ around 10:15 a.m. The resident of the house heard noises coming from the third floor and went upstairs. When the victim got to the third floor, she reportedly saw the suspect inside the residence.

The suspect responded by attacking the victim and punching her in the face.

After what was described as a “brief assault,” the suspect ran downstairs, exited the house, and fled the neighborhood on foot.
