ROSELLE/ROSELLE PARK, NJ - After an extensive search for a suspect that tried to lure a 16 year old male in his car earlier this week on West Grant Avenue in Roselle Park came to an end today when police located the suspect and the car in question.  

Robert Tyson JR, age 22, of East 10th Ave Roselle, an unemployed delivery driver, was arrested today by Roselle Park Detective John Deegan. 

According to Police, Deegan had received a tip that a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle, a gold or tan Chevrolet Impala, was parked and occupied in a local Union County park. The caller reported that the driver of that vehicle also matched the description of the attempted luring suspect. While en route to that location, detectives passed a vehicle they believed was the suspect from the park. They conducted a traffic stop on Locust Street in Roselle and soon confirmed that this was in fact the same vehicle.
