NORTHFIELD—An 18-year old male, Justin V. Inman is in the Atlantic County Justice facility on $5000 full cash bail and multiple charges after a foot chase with Northfield and Pleasantville Police Officers.
While on patrol in the area of the bike path, near Fuae and Fairbanks avenues around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21 Northfield Police Officer, Ptlm. William Ward noticed a suspicious adult male speaking with two young girls. He reported the information to the station indicating the young girls appeared to him to be uncomfortable. The officer approached in his vehicle and as he did so the adult male, later identified as Inman, turned and walked away from the two young females.
After confirming that the 11-year old girls did not know Inman, Ward stopped Inman to speak with him. Inman provided the officer with a false name and was acting very nervous, according to the report from the Northfield PD.
Ward attempted to take Inman into custody at which time the suspect pushed Ward and fled the area. Officers from the Northfield Police Department chased Inman through resident’s yards and over fences. The Pleasantville Police Department came in to assist in the chase and apprehended Inman at 201 Shore Road in Northfield. A Northfield Police officer sprained his knee during the foot pursuit and was later treated.
Inman was found to have an outstanding warrant from Buena, New Jersey. The warrant was in the amount of $5,000.00 full cash. Inman was charged in Northfield with obstructing the administration of law, resisting arrest and aggravated assault on a police officer. Municipal Court Judge Timothy Maguire set bail at $5,000.00 full cash. Inman was lodged at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
