Man charged in violent home invasion in NJ

A man is charged with a violent home invasion, and police say, he is no stranger to them.

On Wednesday, Camden County authorities charged 21-year-old Dante Robinson for a violent home invasion.

But he remains in the hospital after sources say he was shot during the crime.

He is also the same Dante Robinson who was charged in connection with 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale’s 2012 killing in Clayton, New Jersey.

“I knew it was going to happen, it was just a matter of time,” said Tony Pasquale.

Autumn’s father says the court should never have let Robinson out.

As a teenager Dante was charged with his teenage brother Justin.

Justin is serving a seventeen year sentence after a guilty plea to the crime.

In 2013 Dante was released from a juvenile facility after pleading guilty to an obstruction of justice charge.

At the time the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office handled the Gloucester County case.

Just after midnight on Monday the Camden

He helped his overdosing friend by calling 911. Police slapped him with a manslaughter charge.

When his friend began overdosing last November, 32-year-old Christopher Williams did what everyone has been taught to do with a person in a medical emergency: He called 911. Tragically, his friend still died.

This week, Williams was charged with manslaughter for the death.

The reason: Williams was allegedly involved in helping 18-year-old Ariell Brundige in Clay County, Florida, get the drug that she overdosed on. That would normally involve, perhaps, charges for drug possession or distribution. But in this case, police have not only charged Williams with manslaughter, but have also charged 32-year-old Trumaine Muller, who supplied the drugs to Brundige, with murder and 26-year-old Tyler Hamilton, who also helped in getting the drugs, with manslaughter, according to Jacksonville.com.

According to police, Brundige joined Hamilton, her boyfriend, and Williams, a friend, to buy what they thought was heroin from Muller. It turned out to be fentanyl, a

“When he saw the police the suspect attempted to flee but the officers caught up with him. The firearm will be taken to forensics to check if it has been used to commit a crime in Ivory Park or anywhere else,” said Matimulane.

Brigadier David Mbongeni Ngcobo, the Station Commander of the Ivory Park SAPS, welcomed the confiscation of the firearm and the arrest of the suspect.

“Considering the number of robberies committed with firearms, the recovery of this firearm is welcomed,” said Ngcobo.

BOARDMAN

A township woman faces criminal charges after reportedly suffering a drug overdose in November.

Kimberly Ramun, 40, of Angiline Drive was arrested Monday on warrants charging her with endangering children, possessing drug-abuse instruments and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The charges stem from a Nov. 1 incident in which police and emergency and medical responders were called to Ramun’s home for a suspected overdose.

There, a woman reported she had found Ramun unresponsive on a bedroom floor. A 9-year-old was present at the time of the overdose.

Ramun was revived with several doses of naloxone, a medication that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.

Police reported finding syringes, a burnt spoon, and medical gauze sitting on a dresser in Ramun’s bedroom.

Reached by The Vindicator on Tuesday, Ramun declined to comment.

Her arrest is the third in several days by township police for similar incidents.

Police on Friday arrested Kristina Green, 28, of Hillman Way

Two men sentenced in death of home-invasion accomplice

Two men admitted Tuesday that they were involved in a Far West Side home-invasion robbery during which an accomplice was fatally shot.

Michael E. Ruffin, 21, was sentenced to 13 years in prison and Dusty E. Thomas, 20, to 10 years after each pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and aggravated robbery. Ruffin also pleaded guilty to two gun specifications and Thomas to one.

Ruffin, Thomas and Brandon Bolin, 18, forced their way into a residence in the 500 block of Station Road on the night of Dec. 12, 2014, said Assistant Prosecutor Scott Shumaker. One of the occupants of the home, a 21-year-old man, fired at them in self-defense, killing Bolin.

Both of Bolin’s accomplices were indicted for murder, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge as part of a plea agreement. Under Ohio law, murder charges can be filed against a person whose

Good Samaritan stops suspect who was beating woman on NYC street

A good Samaritan interrupted a would-be mugger as he pummeled a woman into unconsciousness a block away from her Lower East Side home, officials said Monday.

The 61-year-old victim suffered bleeding on her brain, and needed to be intubated after the Saturday attack, prosecutors said

Police sources said the attacker, Devin Brown, 23, was looming over the victim on Forsyth St. near Stanton St., by Sara D. Roosevelt Park, when a passing motorist noticed her legs sticking out from behind a tree at 6 a.m.

The witness got out of his car and asked Brown what he was doing, and Brown twice yelled out, “She robbed me!”
