A man remains jailed at the Monmouth County Correctional Institution after police said he resisted arrest and assaulted officers following a domestic dispute.
Police were called to a West Street home at approximately 9:33 p.m. Sunday and discovered that the Red Bank man had caused damage to the home and stolen certain items, according to court documents.
The borough man ripped a bedroom door off its hinges and and "ransacked" the items inside the room, stealing $1,700 in cash, passports, a driver's license and a debit card, police said. He also ripped up the victim's birth certificate and diploma, police said.
The man was told he was under arrest but resisted, locking his arms in front of him to prevent officers from handcuffing him, police said. After being transported to Riverview Medical Center, the man swung at officers while being removed from the police car, court documents state. Additionally, the man damaged a police cruiser by kicking the rear door, police said.
He was charged with two counts of criminal mischief, theft, resisting arrest and aggravated assault on a police officer. He is being held on $138,500 bail, no 10 percent option.
The accused will have his initial appearance in court Thursday morning.
