He’s wanted in connection with last weekend’s attempted robbery, kidnapping and assault of a Red Bank man.

The suspect is one of three men sought by police, says Capt. Steve McCarthy, who heads the detective division.

The assailants are alleged to have assaulted the victim as he walked along Shrewsbury Avenue at about 1:30 Saturday morning. One punched him in the face and demanded money. When the victim told the robbers he had only a credit care, they forced him into a nearby SUV and drove him first to a gas station and then, after realizing they couldn’t get cash from the card account, slashed him in the face with a knife and dumped him in Shrewsbury, according to police.

The victim was treated at Riverview Medical Center and released.

The suspect shown in the sketch is said to have been in the back seat of the SUV with the victim. He’s alleged to have beaten and slashed the victim before shoving him out of the SUV on Sycamore Avenue.

The suspect is described as an African-American in his early to mid 20s, about six-foo-one or two, 170 to 190 pounds, with a muscular build. He was wearing a red and black jacket divided with the colors red and black down the middle diagonally.

The other two suspects are also believed to be black males in their early to mid 20s.
