The Hoboken Police Department arrested a bank robber today. According to Detective Lieutenant Danilo Cabrera, 30-year old Everton Gunter of New York, New York was apprehended and arrested at 11:27 this morning at the corner of 2nd and Hudson Streets.
According to Cabrera, Gunter was arrested and charged with robbery and terroristic threats. Lt. Cabrera says at about 11:07 AM, Hoboken Police Department received information from the Jersey City Police Department of a bank robbery that occurred near the Hoboken border at a TD Bank. A few minutes later, at about 11:16 AM, the Hoboken Police Department received a hold up alarm at a local TD Bank located at 47 Newark Street.
It was reported that a male entered the bank, handed a note to a teller, and demanded money to be placed in a bag he was carrying. He then demanded two other tellers to place money in his bag. No weapon was used. The alleged actor then left the bank and a description and direction of flight was provided to police. The description matched that of the Jersey City alleged actor.
Moments later, as Police Officer Ramon Calderon responded, he located a male fitting the description in the area of 2nd and Hudson Streets. Multiple Uniform Officers and Detectives responded as back up. The on scene investigation led to identifying the actor, who was placed under arrest for the robbery. Detective Ryan Houghton and Police Officer Christopher Barral processed Gunter. Detective Michael Miranda charged Gunter on a warrant with robbery and terroristic threats.
The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law
