Suspect Sought In New Brunswick Sexual Assault Of Rutgers Student

From the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office:

Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Anthony A. Caputo, director of the New Brunswick Police Department, today released a composite sketch of a suspect who sexually assaulted a 24-year-old Rutgers student in January. 

The suspect is described as a heavy-set, Hispanic male with a dark complexion, between the ages of 30 and 40, five-feet, eight-inches tall, with dark “spiked” hair and no facial hair. He was wearing dark pants and a black, zippered hooded jacket.

The suspect last was seen fleeing on Townsend Street toward Joyce Kilmer Avenue shortly after 2:30 a.m. on January 31, 2014.

An investigation determined that the woman was walking on Townsend Street between Livingston and Joyce Kilmer avenues in New Brunswick when the man walked up to her, punched her in the face several times, improperly touched her and attempted to further sexually assault her. He fled when she kicked him and screamed.

The woman went to a residence, where neighbors called police.

The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator James Kelly of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3600, or Detective Ronoldy Martinez of the New Brunswick Police Department at (732) 745-5217.

JANUARY¿ As we all know it's March. Is this how NBPD is protecting the community. New Brunswick is like the Wild West. People are being assaulted, murdered, robbed, the list goes on and on. It think NBPD should start working hard to protect the public. I would that Rutgers demand a safer environment for their students living in that community. A disgrace. The residences within NB should demand strong police enforcement.

I suspect that the NBPD might be more responsive to demands coming from people.
