Armed robbery, assault suspect arrested, charged

RED BANK — A 40-year-old borough man was arrested last week in connection with a robbery at gunpoint, police said.

According to the Red Bank Police Department, in the early morning hours of Aug. 26, Jeffrey Summey of 220 River St., faked a bicycle injury on Shrewsbury Avenue, and then robbed the good Samaritan who stopped to come to his aid.

According to a report filed by the victim, a resident of Eatontown, he saw Summey and his bicycle sprawled out on the side of the street while driving down Shrewsbury Avenue at approximately 2 a.m.

Pulling over to the side of the road, the man asked Summey if he needed some assistance, according to the police report. At that point, the victim said Summey jumped up and approached the victim’s passenger window, pointed what the victim described as a small handgun through the window, and demanded the victim’s wallet.

When the man handed it over, Summey fled on his bicycle.

After a two-day investigation of the incident by detectives Robert Clayton and Thomas Nuccio, and investigators Eliot Ramos and Michael Frazee, Summey was arrested and charged for aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

He was taken to the Monmouth County Correctional Institution in Freehold Township in lieu of $20,000 bail.
