Parsippany NJ police are looking for a masked robber who allegedly broke into a hotel room and assaulted a man.
Several police officers responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Sonesta Suites on Interpace Parkway in Parsippany, NJ. When the officers arrived at the scene, the victim told them that a man had forced his way into the room and knocked him down.
The attacker then allegedly hit the victim in the head with a gun before rummaging through the room and stealing electronics, including an iPhone, an iPad mini, and a Samsung tablet. The man also allegedly took the victim’s wallet, which contained $300 in cash.
The victim told officers that the attacker was wearing a black ski mask, so he did not get a good look at his face.
According to police dispatchers, the suspect might have fled in a Pontiac Grand Am that was seen speeding out of the hotel parking lot. Shortly after the robbery, police stopped a vehicle matching the description given to police dispatchers. The vehicle’s three occupants were arrested after police allegedly found them in possession of 108 Oxycodone pills, Xanax, 18 heroin folds, a semiautomatic weapon, several cell phones, a Samsung tablet, an iPad mini, and several hundred dollars in cash.
The three suspects were all charged with armed robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and possession of a firearm for an unlawful purpose, in addition to other related charges.
