A man arrested for a knifepoint robbery in Hoboken on Thanksgiving was also charged for a robbery out of New York, police said.
Erick Henderson, 27, of Bronx, New York, was charged with robbery, obstruction of administration of law, being a fugitive from justice, and refusal to submit to fingerprinting, according to Police Det. Lt. Danilo Cabrera.
On Thursday, November 25th, Police Officers Enrico Gnassi and James Barbro arrested Henderson for robbery. At about 9:18 p.m., Police Officers Nicholas Protopapadakis and Jessica Arebalo responded to CVS, located at 59 Washington St., on a reported shoplifting.
As they responded, it was learned that the alleged actor was no longer on scene and a description was broadcasted. Upon arrival, it was reported to Protopapadakis that the alleged robber brandished a knife as an employee tried to stop him from shoplifting.
Gnassi began to canvas the surrounding area and found a man matching the description walking down into the PATH station. Gnassi, along with Barro, ordered Henderson to stop. He continued to walk away and they lost sight of him when he turned the corner.
As Gnassi and Barbro approached and turned the corner, they located a bag with proceeds from the robbery. They continued their search for the suspect and located him outside the Lackawana Train Station near Track 1.
The suspect was placed under arrest and was identified as Henderson. Additional proceeds of the robbery were found on him, but no knife. He was transported to police headquarters for processing, where it was learned that he was wanted out of New York for robbery.
Henderson faced the aforementioned charges which were placed on warrants before being transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility, authorities said.
