Quincy Still Reeling Over Recent Crimes

New Brunswick law enforcement continue to search for suspects in the recent crime spree in the Quincy area, a relatively low-crime community. Following the armed robbery of a pizza delivery man at a Quincy Circle apartment complex on November 30, 2012, the community saw a non-fatal shooting at a the Quincy New Brunswick Apartments on Commercial Street in October of 2015.


South Brunswick police, in May of 2013, charged 21-year-old Parysh Wood with robbery for his role as leader of the three-man crew that robbed the pizza delivery man at gunpoint at the N building of the complex. The man attempted to deliver pizza to a resident, who claimed never to have ordered the pizza. When walking back to his delivery van, the three male suspects approached the man, saying that they had ordered the pizza. When going to his van to get the pizza, the suspects put a gun to his head, and stole his wallet and the pizza, before making their getaway in a dark-colored minivan. According to police, Det. Ron Seaman linked cellphone site information around the time and location of the robbery, which he then linked to Wood.


At around 9:30 p.m. on October 5, 2015, police reported that three or four shots rang out in the vicinity of Building 1 of the New Brunswick Apartments. Captain J.T. Miller of the New Brunswick Police Department reported that an “individual walked into” the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital not long after the shooting “with a non-life threatening gun shot wound.” The apartment complex, owned by a limited liability firm in North Quincy, MA, stands across the street from the Rutgers University Police Department’s headquarters.


Police continue to investigate both cases.
