A former Rumson resident faces charges related to a Halloween strong-arm robbery after he turned himself into borough police Tuesday.
Curtis O’Brien, 24, now of Port St. Lucie, Florida, had a warrant out for his arrest after he was identified by witnesses and caught on video in the October 31 robbery of the Buy Rite Liquors store on West River Road, said Detective Chris Ishwerwood.
“He apparently found out about the warrant and turned himself in,” Isherwood said.
Police previously reported that the “apparently agitated” suspect shoved aside a store clerk and grabbed $814 from the cash register in the robbery.
O’Brien was charged with second and third-degree robbery, and transported to the Monmouth County lockup in Freehold. Superior Court Judge Leslie Ann Justus set bail at a full $85,000.
