NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - A Middlesex Borough man involved in a three-hour standoff with police at his home on Tuesday now faces multiple charges, including creating a false public alarm, authorities said.
Officers from the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Special Operations Response Team (SORT) were dispatched to Robert Lujan's home Tuesday shortly after police were called at 5:21 p.m., according to a press release from Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Christopher L.C. Kuberiet and Chief Matthew P. Geist of the Middlesex Police Department.
Lujan surrendered to police at 8:41 p.m. following negotiations with SORT.
No one was injured during the incident.
Lujan is charged with one count of false public alarm in the second degree, one count of misuse of a 911 call in the fourth degree and one count of criminal mischief in the fourth degree, according to the press release.
The charges were filed as the result of an investigation by the Middlesex Police Department after police resolved a potentially dangerous situation by convincing Lujan to surrender following the incident at his home, the release stated.
Lujan was released on a summons and is scheduled to appear on Sept. 26 in New Brunswick Superior Court, police said.
The investigation is active and is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Daniel McCue at the Middlesex Police Department 732-356-1900.
