On March 18, 2024, Bayonne resident Robert C. Crute was arrested by the Bayonne Police Department on charges of lewdness and endangering the welfare of a child. The arrest came after a report of a male, later identified as Crute, exposing and fondling his genitals in public as he was walking on Avenue C. The incident was witnessed by a 13-year-old child and the child’s father.
Following an on-scene investigation, Crute was positively identified as the actor and was taken into custody. In addition to the initial charges of lewdness, Crute was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Crute’s arrest highlights the ongoing efforts of the Bayonne Police Department to ensure the safety and well-being of the community. Public indecency and acts that endanger the welfare of children are taken seriously by law enforcement, and those found guilty of such offenses can face severe consequences.
