Police Commissioner Thomas R. Sofield, Sr., of the Long Beach Police Department announced the arrest of Shawn Persaud, age 16, of Long Beach.  The Long Beach resident was charged with Robbery 2nd Degree. 

The arrest stems from an incident that occurred on September 17, 2011, in the area of Long Beach Blvd and the Boardwalk.  At that place and time it is alleged that a jogger was on the boardwalk when he was approached by a group of young males.  The victim was grabbed from behind and thrown to the ground.  During the attack a cell phone and a small amount of cash was stolen from the victim.  As a result of the attack the victim suffered minor injuries.

Detective Lieutenant James Canner, Commanding Officer of the Department’s Detective Division stated, “The Long Beach Boardwalk is the jewel of the City of Long Beach.  The Long Beach Police Department takes its responsibility seriously when it comes to providing the best public safety to all that enjoy the Boardwalk.  Prior to this incident, the 2011 summer season had no serious crime on the boardwalk.  This was the result of the hard work and attention the Long Beach Police Department provides when addressing Boardwalk issues.  When this crime was perpetrated in September, the Long Beach Detectives and Street Crimes Unit were relentless in investigating this case to ensure that the perpetrators would be brought to justice. Additionally, following this incident uniformed patrol units were increased on the boardwalk. “The arrest of Mr. Persaud was the culmination of a concentrated effort by the Long Beach Police Department’s Detective Division. Detective Lieutenant Canner added, “We are continuing our investigation and more arrests are expected.”
