On November 30, 2012 a robbery took place in Quincy Circle, a parking lot in South New Brunswick, New Jersey. The victim was a pizza delivery driver who was walking back to his car around 9:30 p.m. Little did he know he was followed by a man named Parysh Wood. Wood then demanded his money and pizza and fled.
Wood, who uses the aliases “Pistol” and “P-Gun,” was caught in January of 2013. Police and investigators looked into his cellphone records, which placed him at the day and time of the robbery.
Assigned to the case, Chief Raymond Hayducka is noted saying, “In this digital age, many criminals leave a footprint, which we just need to find.”
Not only were the records incriminating, he and a woman named Justina Hampton were linked to other robberies in the city.
After charging Wood and holding him on a $100,00 bail, police have kept the case open for any additional arrests.
Another crime also took place in New Brunswick, on October 5, 2015. This time a shooting at the New Brunswick Apartments.
According to dispatchers bullets rang out at 9:30 p.m. Then, subsequently, the New Brunswick Police arrived at 33 Commercial Avenue, which is in the First Ward. The 206-unit complex has had its share of criminal activity in its later years. But, records show, there was only one person injured.
Also, the police have scant knowledge of the suspect involved. The suspect, an alleged male, was seen wearing a hoodie. He fled down Neilsen Street. But, they do know three or four bullets were fired, because of the additional shell casings left at the scene.
The New Brunswick Police Department detectives have decided to keep the identities of the victim and suspect anonymous. They say charges will follow and are still investigating the shooting.
