After releasing surveillance video of a suspect who police believe assaulted a 21-year-old woman and took her purse in the summer, an anonymous tip led to an arrest on Wednesday, said police director Jerry Speziale.
Danny R. Nunez, 31, was identified and arrested at his East 23rd Street apartment on Wednesday thanks to the tip, said the director.
Nunez punched and kicked the woman to the ground on Rosa Parks Boulevard on July 26th, 2015 before getting away with her purse. A video footage captured him hanging out in the area before the incident.
The director said sergeant Steve Iacuzzo, Benny Ramos, Todd Pearl, Richard Martinez, and Jason English were responsible for Nunez’s arrest.
“Paterson detectives in their pursuit of justice will pull out all the stops to hold those responsible for their crimes,” warned Speziale.
