NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Another Rutgers University student was charged this week in connection with a home invasion and robbery targeting other students.
Lloyd M. Terry, 20, of Wrightstown, was arrested Wednesday in New Brunswick and was charged with armed robbery, armed burglary, and conspiracy to commit armed robbery, according to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s office.READ MORE: NYPD: Gunman In Custody After Kids Caught In Crossfire In The Bronx
Prosecutors believe Terry was one of three masked men who stormed into a home on Prosper Street in New Brunswick and robbed five other students of money and marijuana. Prosecutors identified the other two masked suspects as former student and football player Tejay Johnson, 23, and Andre Boggs, a 20-year-old defensive back on the football team.
The latest charges came as the Rutgers University Police Department announced it was expanding off-campus security efforts as 10 current and former Rutgers students, including five members of the football team, face charges of robbing and assaulting other students.
The university on Thursday began reaching out to nearly 10,000 students who live south and west of the College Avenue Campus in New Brunswick to offer window alarms and light timers, and advise them on ways to be more safety-conscious.
“The safety and well-being of all members of our community are a priority,” Chancellor Richard Edwards told The Record newspaper.
Public safety patrols will be increased in the Fifth and Sixth wards, where many students live off-campus, Chief of University Police Kenneth Cop said.
“There was a presence in the past but this is definitely an increase from what it was,” he told 1010 WINS’ Rebecca Granet.
