Rutgers University ‘Affiliates’ Attacked in Home Invasion Robbery

New Brunswick

The New Brunswick Police Department is investigating a home invasion reported to have occurred on March 13, at approximately 11:15 p.m., at a private residence near the intersection of Delafield and Courtland.

Officials would not say if the victims were Rutgers students. 

According to Rutgers Police Chief Keneth Cop, in this incident, the victims, who are ‘affiliated’  with Rutgers University, reported when they started to leave their residence, two perpetrators forced their way into the home.  

Chief Cop said the suspect demanded personal property from the victims and verbally stated they had a weapon once inside.  

A struggle between the victims and the suspect occurred, which resulted in one perpetrator fleeing the area on foot and one perpetrator being subdued by the victims until NBPD arrived.  

The victims were not physically injured during the incident. 

The description of the perpetrator that is still at large is a black male in his late twenties with a skin-tight fade with an afro hairstyle on top, approximately 5’8” tall, chipped tooth, black hoodie, black jacket, and black pants.

The New Brunswick Police Department asks that anyone with information, or who may have been in the area at the time, contact the NBPD’s Detective Bureau at 732-745-5217.
