Police were told the suspect who committed the robbery brandished a knife and obtained money prior to fleeing, running in an unknown direction. A description of the suspect was provided by TD Bank employees to the police department.

Moments later, Police Officer Andrew Brodzinski reported he had observed a suspect matching the description running from the area. Additional officers responded and saturated the area and established a perimeter, according to Meabe.

Police Officer Michael Basso later relayed he had observed the suspect running through the 60 Acre Reserve subdivision toward Manhattan Street, whereupon a foot pursuit commenced and the suspect was apprehended without further incident.

Meabe said the suspect ran to a residence he had been staying at and that is where he was apprehended. Some cash proceeds as well as a knife suspected of being the weapon involved in the bank robbery were later recovered.

The 32-year-old male resident of Bayville was charged with armed robbery and eluding a police officer/resisting arrest. He was initially placed in the Ocean County Jail, Toms River.
