YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A “WANTED” poster helped Teaneck police nab down a man being sought by their Englewood colleagues for punching his girlfriend in the face, dragging her by the collar and stealing items from her.
Teaneck Officer Arnot Peters spotted 19-year-old Gnahore Gnegbo as he walked into a 7Eleven last night, Englewood Detective Capt. Tim Torelli said today.
“Law enforcement agencies throughout New Jersey have several data bases we effectively use to network with each other,” Torell said, noting that his department issued a “WANTED” poster with Gnegbo’s picture on it.
Gnegbo gave a false name, but Peters — backed up by Teaneck Police Chief Robert Wilson and other Officers — quickly took him into custody.
Gnebo was being held on $51,000 bail in connection with the Englewood incidents. Teaneck police also charged him with providing false information.
Officers responding to the Stop ‘N Go Convenience Store at the corner of Lafayette Place and Rosemont Place on Wednesday found the 20-year-old victim “with fresh injuries to her head,” Englewood Police Chief Arthur O’Keefe said.
After beating her, the woman said, Gnegbo “took some of her personal items by force during the incident and fled,” the chief said.
Gnegbo already was wanted for a probation violation stemming from a previous burglary charge, as well as for various offenses in other jurisdictions, records show.
