Robbery Suspect and Alleged Victims Face Charges in Brick Township

A Toms River 44-year-old is accused of trying to wrestle money away from someone inside a Brick Township family restaurant, and the apparent victims face weapon weapon and drug charges.

According to Brick police, Bertrick A. Artis confronted a patron at a party inside the Chuck E. Cheese on Chambersbridge Road, demanding money.

Bystanders told police that Artis had threatened to “shoot the place up,” then tried to physically pull money out of the individual’s pants pocket. Family members then called 911.

Officers identified the pair embroiled with Artis as Antinique M. Wright, 21, of Lakewood and Martez Williams, 22, of Asbury Park. All three were arrested and processed at Brick Police headquarters.

Artis was charged with robbery and moved to the Ocean County Jail in Toms River, with bail set at $350,000 and no option for release on payment of 10 percent.

Wright was charged with possession of a stun gun and released on a criminal summons. Williams was given a summons for possession of marijuana and for possession of paraphernalia related to controlled dangerous substances.

The probe is continuing. If you can offer any relevant information to investigators, reach Detective Thomas Cooney, 732-262-5708, or Detective Daniel Waleski, 732-262-1170.
