Suspects Arrested in Pizza Robbery

A man and a woman have been arrested in connection with the Jan. 4 robbery of a pizza deliveryman on Charles Street.

Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the robbery of a pizza deliveryman in New Brunswick.

Parysh Wood, 21, and Justina Hampton, 19, both of North Brunswick, were arrested Friday night and charged as suspects in a Charles Street robbery of a pizza deliveryman earlier that night.

According to police, the 31-year-old pizza deliveryman from Brunswick Pizza was delivering food to a Charles Street address around 11:30 p.m. Friday, when he was robbed of cash and the pizza at gun and knife point.

He was not injured in the incident, and was able to describe the suspects to police, according to a press release from the New Brunswick Police Department.

Wood and Hampton have both been charged with robbery, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, obstructing the administration of law, and hindering apprehension by giving false information to law enforcement, the release said.

The suspects were arrested shortly after and arrested without incident.

Middlesex and Somerset Counties have seen a rash of pizza deliveryman robberies since November, with nine robberies reported across five towns in that time, according to an article on NJ.com.

New Brunswick police are currently investigating any link between the Charles Street robbery and any other robberies, the release said.
