A Union City woman tries to help a homeless couple only to get robbed by them.
Deidra Cook, 38, of North Bergen and Danny Aquino, 32, of North Bergen stole the victim’s Coach watch, $200 in cash, a $120 Boost mobile phone and a $200 Samsung mobile phone.
The incident happened at 2700 Bergenline Avenue in Union City and the victim says she waited to report the crime because she was in fear for her life.
She befriended the pair and bought them groceries when she found out they were living in an abandoned building on the 2100 block of Summit Ave.
Cook arranged to meet the victim to talk and knocked her unconscious when she arrived. When she awoke, she was at Jersey City Medical Center.
This is an ongoing investigation.
Cook and Aquino are no strangers to the police since HCTV previously reported that these individuals were arrested in North Bergen on a different charge a few months ago. See http://hudsoncountytv.com/homeless-charged-stealing-copper-wire-vacant-home/
