New Yorker Given 15 Years for Neptune Knifepoint Robbery

The New Yorker who was convicted of a knifepoint robbery inside a Neptune Township bank in August 2011 will head to a New Jersey state prison for 15 years.

Raymond Wilson of Yonkers was sentenced Friday in Freehold in the aftermath of a three-week trial that ended December 12.

According to acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Grammiccioni’s office, Judge John Mullaney invoked provisions of the No Early Release Act on the 15-year term for armed robbery, meaning that Wilson will be expected to serve 85 percent of the term before parole eligibility. A five-year sentence for aggravated assault will run concurrently.

Investigators said that on August 1, 2011, at about 7:45 AM in the Wells Fargo branch on Fortunato Place, Wilson brandished a knife as a woman tried to enter a daily deposit for a nearby restaurant. She required treatment at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.

Wilson was also convicted of issuing terroristic threats and two weapons charges.
