Following an extensive investigation by the South Brunswick Police Department and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, charges were filed relating to numerous cases of cyber harassment committed from Jan. 15 to April 9.

Sudeep Khetani, 34, of Kendall Park, allegedly made several hundred calls to numerous local restaurants using false phone numbers; ordered thousands of dollars worth of food without intent to pay for or pick up the food; and used harassing, threatening, sexually explicit and biased comments against employees who answered the phone, according to information provided by the South Brunswick Police Department on Aug. 25.

In addition, Khetani is a suspect in similar incidents in several surrounding townships.

South Brunswick Police Department Chief Raymond J. Hayducka praised Detective Tim Hoover’s tenacity in the case.

“Detective Hoover filed many subpoenas, conducted numerous interviews, and exhausted all investigative means to bring this case to a successful conclusion. His hard work put an end to Khetani’s alarming actions,” he said in the statement.

Khetani’s alleged actions came at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic when many local restaurants were struggling to stay afloat, causing additional hardship to their owners, according to the statement.

Khetani was also charged with promoting prostitution stemming from an unrelated 2019 incident, according to the statement.

Khetani was being lodged at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center pending his first court appearance, as of press time.
