Is Violence the thing of the past for Quincy Circle?

How is the violence on Quincy Circle now? New Brunswick, Nj police department consider their area a safe place to live but will put in overtime work when it comes to violence in their city. Parysh Wood, at 21 years old was prosecuted for a robbery that occurred with a pizza man on November 30, 2012. It all started when the pizza man was sent to an address on Quincy Circle for a fake delivery. He was informed that not anyone ordered pizza from that address and was robbed on the way back to his car. Three male robbers approached him from the back with a gun to his head and demanded his money. Thankfully, they did not shoot the victim. Obviously, they were the ones who set up the pizza robbery. Detective Ron Seaman who was assigned to the case worked hard with the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office and “obtained cell phone site information around the time and area of the robbery.” (James, D. (2013). Advanced technology is what helped solved this case within four months.


On October 7, 2015, police were called out to a New Brunswick apartment complex that is considered a common crime area. Gunshots were reported from building one of the residences. One person was rushed to the hospital from a gunshot wound in that area. A continued investigation was underway to find the intruder. The apartment complex is located across the street from Rutgers University Police Departement’s headquarters, but that didn’t seem to put any limits to the violent acts that have occurred in the area. The armed suspect was described as “wearing a hoodie who fled towards Neilsen Street.” (Kratovil, C. (2015). The police returned to the crime scene the next day after discovering more evidence.
