Neptune Man Jailed After Multiple Town Crime Spree
Attempted Murder, Armed Robbery, and Aggravated Assault are just a few of the charges facing 22 year old Quam Wilson after a 24-hour crime spree in Monmouth County.
Detectives from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, Asbury Park, Ocean, Long Branch, and Neptune Police Departments, as well as the United States Marshall’s Office Fugitive Task Force participated in the investigation and capture of Wilson.
Acting Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni says Wilson is currently in Monmouth County Correctional Institution on $1.15 million bail with no 10% cash option.
Wilson’s crime spree began early Tuesday morning, when he allegedly shot and robbed a cab driver in Asbury Park. The victim suffered a single gunshot wound to the head, and is in critical but stable condition at Jersey Shore University Medical Center.
According to the Prosecutor’s Office, Wilson then robbed a gas attendant with a handgun at the Shell station on Asbury Ave. in Ocean Township.
Later that morning, Wilson tried to obtain money from the cab driver’s bank account from several area banks. A Neptune bank manager, suspecting a theft, confiscated the identification and debit card from Wilson and contacted the Neptune Police Department. Wilson fled before police arrived.
At approximately 9:00 p.m., that same day, Wilson committed an armed robbery at a taxi stand in Long Branch with a handgun.
Early Wednesday morning, Wilson robbed a Quick Check convenient store on Rt. 33 in Neptune, and fled in a motor vehicle. Neptune Police stopped Wilson at around 4 p.m., but he assaulted an officer and eluded authorities once again.
Wilson was arrested at approximately 10:00 p.m. later that evening in a house located at 1318 Monroe Avenue in Neptune by several police officers.
According to the Prosecutor’s Office, Wilson is facing the following charges: one count of Attempted Murder, four counts of first degree Armed Robbery, four counts of second degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, four counts of second degree Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, two counts of second degree Aggravated Assault, one count of third degree Terroristic Threats and one count of second degree Eluding.
