On June 13th at 3:13 a.m., during a motor vehicle stop, Secaucus police arrested Charles Jones, 18, of Jersey City, for aggravated assault against a police officer, resisting arrest and hindering apprehension by providing false information, according to Police Chief Dennis Miller.

“Upon being advised he was being placed under arrest, he kicked and struck police officers in an attempt to resist,” Miller told HCV.

Also charged was Yakneeka Davis, 18, of Jersey City, for an outstanding warrant in her home town in the amount of $5,000 with a 10 percent option – as well as for resisting arrest, police said.

Davis was able to post bail for the involved warrant, was issued her complaint summons and was released from police custody. Meanwhile, Jones was issued his complaint warrant and was subsequently transported to the Hudson County jail, officials said.
