Parsippany New Jersey police officers recently arrested a local man who was accused of physically threatening his young kids.
The Parsippany Police Department sent several police officers to the Travelodge Inn, a motel located on Route 46 in Parsippany, after authorities received an early-morning phone call about a domestic disturbance. When Parsippany NJ cops got to the motel, they could not gain immediate access to the suspect’s motel room because he allegedly barricaded the door to prevent anyone from getting inside.
Parsippany NJ police officers then called the Morris County Sheriff’s Office and the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office to request backup assistance. Members of the Morris County Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team soon arrived at the scene and managed to enter the motel room. The suspect was subsequently placed under arrest.
The good news is that the two young victims were reportedly unhurt during the scary incident. They were both taken into custody by police at the scene and then transferred to the care of the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P).
The suspect is a 33-year-old Parsippany New Jersey resident. He faces criminal charges for endangering the welfare of a child, which is a second degree felony and carries a potential penalty of 5-10 years in NJ State Prison.
On top of the criminal penalties, the suspect might also lose custody of his kids. That’s because DCP&P will almost certainly investigate the alleged threat crime and determine whether the children will be safe under the care and supervision of the suspect.
Since the incident has already been classified as a domestic violence incident, it is also possible that the suspect will be subject to a restraining order that prevents him from making contact with the children or their mother.
