NEWARK -- Police on Friday arrested a Newark man who was wanted in a shooting that injured a 17-year-old boy and a separate armed street robbery days apart in August, authorities said.
Aquil Baldwin, 25, was charged with aggravated assault, robbery and weapons offenses. Members of the city police division's Fugitive Apprehension Team arrested Baldwin without incident, according to Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose.
Baldwin is accused of shooting the teen Aug. 6 at the Georgia King Village apartment complex, according to authorities. The teen was treated for non life-threatening injuries at University Hospital.
Ten days later, police said Baldwin also robbed a 60-year-old man near Market Street and Springfield Avenue. The man flagged down officers on patrol and reported he was robbed by an armed man who took his cash as the victim left a bank.
City detectives determined Baldwin was a suspect in both crimes and authorities issued a warrant for his arrest, Ambrose added.
A woman who lives in the apartment where Baldwin was arrested, identified as Malikah Roberts, 35, of Newark, was also charged with hindering apprehension, police said.
