Updated: May 19
A Camden County man was arrested for allegedly trying to rob a woman at Wawa money machine in Egg Harbor Township. Police were called to the Wawa on English Creek Avenue just after noon Tuesday for an attempted strong armed robbery, Lt. Heath Per said. A 25-year-old township woman had just taken money out of the ATM inside the store when the man tried to forcefully take it from her, according to the report. After a struggle, the man tried to run from the store but was physically detained by good Samaritan, Per said. John Mistrushi, 37, of Lindenwold, is charged with robbery and offenses under the Controlled Dangerous Substances Act. He is being held in the Atlantic County Justice Facility on a warrant.
Note: The Atlantic County Justice Facility no longer provides mugshots to the media, citing the Atlantic County prosecutor’s order. The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office says it’s part of the Attorney General’s Guidelines. There is no such guideline, according to the Attorney General’s Office, but they have told these offices for years that they should not release any photos that appear to be mugshots.
