The Newark Police Department’s Fugitive Apprehension Team arrested one of the city’s 12 most wanted criminals this week.
Keith Herd, 20, of Newark was wanted by police for playing a role in a March 12 incident during which police said he shot and wounded an 18-year-old Newark man. He was also wanted for a role he played in a March 21 incident in which he and two other suspects, also in custody, committed an armed robbery and assault of a 21-year-old Newark woman, police said.
Police said Herd, who was considered armed and dangerous, was arrested on June 10 at about 8 a.m. on Runyon Street without incident. He was charged in both incidents with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon. The first incident also carried a charge of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and the second incident added charges of robbery and conspiracy.
