NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — A “large disturbance” on July 4 led police to arrest a city man on gun charges after he allegedly threatened a crowd in Robeson Village, according to a news release.
Alberto Gomez, 22, was arrested “without incident” at 4 p.m. yesterday, July 6, New Brunswick police said. He’s facing “multiple firearms offenses,” they said.
At around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, city cops responded to an incident in the parking lot of the public housing complex, according to police. They said they heard word of a disturbance and a man who allegedly waved a gun at a group of “disorderly” people.
