On November 30, 2012, a pizza delivery man approached an apartment building on Quincy Circle in the Dayton section of South Brunswick in New Brunswick, NJ, but was told by the resident inside that no order had been placed. As he returned to his vehicle, he was approached from behind by three male suspects who claimed the pizza was for them. One man held the delivery driver at gunpoint, and the suspects made off with the driver’s wallet, money, and pizza. After fleeing the scene on foot initially, all of the suspects disappeared into an older, dark-colored minivan. None of them were apprehended until months later. One suspect, Parysh Wood, was arrested by South Brunswick Police in May of 2013 in connection with this incident, and is presently being held on $100,000 bail. He was caught using digital evidence that placed him at the scene of the crime when it occurred.
Another violent incident occurred in the area on October 5, 2015, when several gunshots were fired in the vicinity of Building 1. Police responded to a call at 33 Commercial Avenue, and found that one individual had sustained non-life-threatening injuries. He was treated at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and discharged. The injured person was unable to provide police with a comprehensive description of the suspect; he only recalled that he was wearing a hoodie and fled toward Neilsen Street. Additional bullet casings were found on the grounds of the apartment complex the following day during an unrelated exercise, further complicating the investigation. The identities of both the victim and the suspect are being kept confidential while the investigation is ongoing.
