Pennsylvania man to remain jailed for Seaside Heights Attempted Murder
The Pennsylvania man who was arrested earlier this month on charges including Attempted Murder for shooting a man in a Seaside Heights motel room will remained jailed in Ocean County following a detention hearing, Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced on Friday.
Jose Serrano-Robles, 43, of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, will remain detained pending trial on charges of Attempted Murder, Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and Being a Certain Person Not to Possess Weapons following a shooting incident that occurred in the early morning hours of August 16 at the La Fontana Motel on Grant Avenue.
9-1-1 calls came in that morning around 2:00 am and when borough police arrived on scene, they found a 51-year old victim suffering from an apparent gun shot wound to the head.
He was hospitalized and was last known to be in stable condition.
Robles had already fled the room that he shared with the victim.
Investigators searched the motel room and found two guns in his absence.
Seaside Heights Police Detectives were able to later locate Serrano-Robles at the Toms River Bus Station that day, and he was taken into custody without incident.
Serrano-Robles has been lodged in the Ocean County Jail since his apprehension.
The detention hearing on Friday was handled by Ocean County Assistant Prosecutor Lynn Juan.
