TOMS RIVER, NJ – A Point Pleasant Boro man, William McMenamin, 29, is headed to prison for aggravated assault and robbery for an incident that occurred on April 28, 2021, and another incident on October 8, 2021.

“On April 28, 2021, Officers from the Toms River Township Police Department were summoned to the area of Main Street and Route 37 for a report of a fight in progress.  Responding Officers located a nineteen-year-old male victim who reported that he had been assaulted and that his backpack had been stolen.  The victim was transported to Community Medical Center for treatment of his injuries,” said Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Spokesman Bryan Huntenburg in a statement. “A subsequent investigation conducted by the responding Toms River Police Officers identified McMenamin as the individual who attacked and robbed the victim.  McMenamin was arrested and transported to the Ocean County Jail; he was subsequently released by the Court as a consequence of New Jersey Bail Reform.”

Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer said the state is seeking a 5-year prison sentence.

“On October 8, 2021, Officers from the Lacey Township Police Department were summoned to the Lacey Inn for a report of a robbery.  An investigation by responding Officers revealed that McMenamin – who was a guest at the Lacey Inn – attacked and robbed a fellow occupant of the Inn.  McMenamin was arrested and transported to the Ocean County Jail, where he has been lodged since his apprehension on October 8, 2021,” Huntenburg reported.
