Everton Gunter, 30, of New York, New York, was charged with robbery and terroristic threats, according to Police Det. Lt. Danilo Cabrera.
At about 11:07 a.m. this morning, the Hoboken Police Department received information from the Jersey City Police Department that a bank robbery occurred near the border of the two cities at a TD Bank.
A few minutes later, at approximately 11:16 a.m., the Hoboken Police Department received a hold up alarm at a local TD Bank located at 47 Newark St.
Police were told that a man entered the bank, handed a note to a teller, and demanded money to be placed in a bag he was carrying. He then demanded two other tellers to place money in his bag and no weapon was used.
The man, later identified as Gunter, then left the bank and his description and direction of travel was provided to authorities and the description matched that of the Jersey City bank robber.
Moments later, as Police Officer Ramon Calderon responded, he located a man fitting the description in the area of 2nd and Hudson Streets. As a result, multiple uniformed officers and detectives responded as back up.
An on-scene investigation led to identifying the man and placing him under arrest for the robbery.
Det. Ryan Houghton and Police Officer Christopher Barral processed Gunter, while Det. Michael Miranda charged Gunter on a warrant with robbery and terroristic threats, police said.
