A man was robbed at knifepoint as he did yard work on Friday on Iorio Drive in the Yardville section of Hamilton, according to police.
A male victim was outside of his residence doing yard work and was approached by a male dressed in all dark clothing wearing a black ski mask armed with a knife.
The suspect walked the victim back into his residence where he demanded money and jewelry. Once inside the residence, the victim gave the suspect money and he fled the area towards the rear of the property.
Responding Patrol Officers Michael Kenna, Anthony Lucidi, and Aaron Kulak located and arrested the suspect identified as John Drager Jr. a short distance from the scene.
John Drager Jr. was charged with Robbery, Kidnapping, Weapons Offenses and Obstruction regarding this incident.
This is not Dreager’s first run-in with the law – according to the Trentonian last October that Drager was arrested during a traffic stop and found with 106 decks of heroin, 56 Cyclobenzaprine pills, three grams of crack cocaine and a small plastic bag containing additional cocaine in Bordertown.
Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is asked to contact Detective Inman at (609)581-4035 or the Hamilton Police Crime Tip Hotline at (609) 581-4008.
