Po­lice blot­ter

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - WEATHER - The in­for­ma­tion below was pro­vided by po­lice un­less oth­er­wise noted.


False Rob­bery At­tack: Juan Ortega-Me­jia, 49, was ar­rested Thurs­day morn­ing after he al­legedly at­tacked two men with a knife and then called po­lice and re­ported he was robbed. Of­fi­cials say de­tec­tives were sent to Franklin Street to in­ves­ti­gate a rob­bery and en­coun­tered Ortega, who was stand­ing out­side with blood on his jeans and shirt. While in­ter­view­ing Ortega, po­lice saw two other men in­side the home oc­ca­sion­ally peer out of the win­dow. After po­lice knocked on the door, one of the men opened it, and the de­tec­tives no­ticed blood in the door­way. Dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, po­lice learned Ortega had pulled out a knife and cut one of the vic­tims dur­ing an ar­gu­ment. A 38-yearold man stepped be­tween the pair and tried to con­fis­cate the knife, but Ortega punched him in the face. Ortega then left the home, of­fi­cials say, and called po­lice to re­port he was robbed. The 36-year-old vic­tim suf­fered lac­er­a­tions on his hand, and both vic­tims de­clined med­i­cal at­ten­tion.

Pot Bust: James Bel­lamy, 31, was ar­rested Wed­nes­day after po­lice al­legedly found him in pos­ses­sion of 10bag­gies of mar­i­juana and $220, which was seized as sus­pected drug pro­ceeds. Of­fi­cials say po­lice were pa­trolling the city when they con­ducted a ran­dom li­cense plate check on a ve­hi­cle Bel­lamy was driv­ing. Dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, they learned the reg­is­tered owner’s driver’s li­cense had ex­pired, so po­lice con­ducted a mo­tor ve­hi­cle stop in the 800block of Park­side Av­enue. Po­lice say Bel­lamy pulled over and stopped the car, but then fled on foot. Dur­ing the chase, po­lice tack­led Bel­lamy onto the ground; and there was a brief strug­gle be­fore he was placed in hand­cuffs.

Box Cut­ter At­tack: Joseph Piotroski, 26, was ar­rested early Thurs­day morn­ing after he al­legedly at­tacked a man with a box cut­ter. Of­fi­cials say po­lice were sent to a home in the 200block of Tyler Street to in­ves­ti­gate a re­ported as­sault and heard a dis­tur­bance in­side the apart­ment when they ar­rived. When de­tec­tives en­tered the home, they saw a male vic­tim ly­ing on the ground with Piotroski stand­ing over him. The 31-year-old vic­tim told po­lice Piotroski grabbed a box cut­ter and swung it at him dur­ing an ar­gu­ment. The knife cut the vic­tim’s chest, and when he fell, Piotroski punched the man in the chest and back. Po­lice re­cov­ered the box cut­ter, and the vic­tim was taken to the hos­pi­tal to treat a lac­er­a­tion on his chest.

Pot Bust Too: Hashim Long, 43, was ar­rested Wed­nes­day night after po­lice saw him en­gaged in an al­leged drug deal. Dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, po­lice found Long in pos­ses­sion of 12 grams of mar­i­juana and $111 in cash.
