Police arrested a man suspected of committing a violent home invasion captured on a nanny cam.In a video that was viewed by millions of people and that garnered national attention, a large man can be seen breaking in through a home’s front door and violently attacking a young mother in front of her three-year-old daughter. The images show the man repeatedly punching and kicking the woman before throwing her down a stairwell and exiting the home.
Last week, 42-year-old Shawn Custis was arrested in New Jersey. Authorities believe that he committed the attack. With the assault receiving national attention, the Essex County prosecutor’s office and the FBI coordinated to make the arrest.
Mr. Custis now faces several criminal charges, including attempted murder, burglary, robbery, and child endangerment.
The penalties for burglary in New Jersey are set forth in N.J.S.A. 2C:18-2. Because the victim in this case was seriously injured during the burglary, Mr. Custis may be charged with second degree burglary, which is a felony. If that happens, he could be sentenced to up to ten (10) years in New Jersey State Prison.
After being arrested, Mr. Custis was transported to an undisclosed location in New Jersey.
