On-campus robbery leads to two arrests

first_imgTaking advantage of almost every public safety resource in the school’s arsenal, a female student who was robbed on campus Monday was able to recover her property and see two suspects arrested.After nearly a month without a reported robbery at USC, a female student walking through the parking lot behind the University Park Health Center at 12:25 p.m. Monday was robbed by two juvenile males, who shoved her from behind and stole her property.Thinking quickly, the student followed the two teenagers, who fled the scene with her possessions.As she pursued the two into the North University Park area, just north of Jefferson Boulevard, she found a yellow-jacketed Contemporary Services Corporation security ambassador, whom she asked for help.The student and the security ambassador followed the two robbers to the area of Orchard Avenue and Jefferson. The security ambassador contacted the Department of Public Safety via radio, and DPS found the two teenagers in the area of Jefferson and Hoover Street. They were then taken into custody.DPS Capt. David Carlisle said this incident exemplifies how the CSC security force can help the USC community.“It is an example of how they can assist us by observing and assisting a citizen,” Carlisle said. “That’s what they’re there for … In this case, it worked out as it was supposed to.”Carlisle said the capture of the two suspects was also a good example of the type of teamwork DPS and other safety officers strive for.The CSC security ambassadors are new this semester, and Carlisle said he suspects their presence has contributed to the decrease in crime.Robberies in broad daylight, like the one Monday, are uncommon, Carlisle noted.“I might attribute to this act that these were juveniles, so maybe they were a little more bold,” he said. “Fortunately, they’re now in custody.”last_img read more

Residents Hear Latest On White Street Parking Plans

first_img“I think it’s an attractive area for them to want to come in, but we do plan on at least incorporating the conduit to have it run so that in the event if we can’t get the charging stations now, we at least have the ability to hook up in the future,” said Neumann. “But it’s definitely something we’re looking to incorporate.” There will be 10 additional parking spaces in total between on-street parking and lot spaces, bringing the total to 314 spaces. The Marlboro-based Lima Charlie Construction vendor has been awarded a contract to do the work. COURTESY CME ASSOCIATES Red Bank officials are planning to upgrade White Street and its adjoining parking lot in the next few months. The goal is to begin construction in July and complete both projects by November. By Allison Perrine Councilman Ed Zipprich asked questions about potential electric charging stations in the White Street lot. According to Neumann, she is working on having those stations in the parking lot and is reaching out to vendors to see if it is feasible. “When we took a look atthe parking lot, we lookedat how best to lay it out toget not only the best yieldbut also the best circulationfrom the standpoint of bothvehicles and pedestrians,”said Neumann. The article originally appeared in the May 14 – 20, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times. The plan is to transform the existing on-street parking to angled parking with 12 additional spaces and to revamp the adjoining public parking lot to make it safer for pedestrians and motorists. Business administrator Ziad Shehady described the location as “one of the most popular and well-visited parking lots” in Red Bank. The idea to improve White Street parking is not new. The mayor and council obtained a grant from the state Department of Transportation last year to partially fund White Street improvements. The parking lot improvements, however, are not covered by the grant and will be funded entirely by revenue from the borough’s parking utility. George Lyristis, a local restaurateur who owns the nearby Teak Asian Fusion, echoed a similar sentiment during public comment. He feels the White Street entrance to the lot is too close to Maple Avenue. When Count Basie is up and running and lets people out, he feels it will be congested. center_img “Generally speaking, the borough wants to take advantage of the downtime within the confines of the borough due to the pandemic to keep construction moving forward so that it doesn’t negatively impact the residents and the business community when some of the regulations ease up,” said Shehady. The project is not just about increasing capacity, Shehady said. It’s about safety as well. In 2017, there were about 25 incidents involving motorists and/or pedestrians on White Street and in its parking lot. In 2018, that number reached 29. In 2019, it was 35. The lot has fallen into “quite a bit of disrepair” over the years, said Shehady. It is not ADA compliant in parking stall size or access aisle width standards, said borough engineer Laura Neumann. The traffic flow through the lot is not well defined. It does not meet the minimum requirement of ADA parking stalls. Lighting does not meet current standards, she added. Resident Andre Bondi said that while he understands the goal of maximizing the safety within the parking lot, he has concerns about the impact it will have on traffic movement outside of the lot. He particularly took issue with the entrances and exits of the lot being two-way on the White Street side. “I’m concerned about the risk of a collision, people going out especially at the Maple Avenue end,” he said. “If someone is coming down Maple Avenue from Water Street rather fast … there’s a risk of collision with somebody coming out” of the parking lot. “We hope by reducing theconflict points for traffic onthe parking lot, with all theturns and the stops, that thiswill hopefully create a safersituation,” said Shehady. RED BANK – Residents got a look at the borough’s latest proposal to improve White Street and its public parking lot Tuesday, May 5, during a virtual public input session. The project proposes two access points from White Street to promote a free-flow of traffic. A walkway area is proposed for the lot’s center island to safely allow pedestrians to get to the crosswalk areas. Drainage mechanisms will be implemented to make way for less impervious coverage. Parking stalls in the lot will be updated to 9-feet by 18-feet. Over 30 residents tuned into the Zoom meeting May 5. Most residents who spoke out seemed to have positive reactions to the plan overall, but with some concerns regarding safety. last_img read more
