A Union Beach man accused of trying to stab an unnamed person with a hypodermic needle in July was taken into custody Friday, according to court records.
Joseph V. Jack, 24, of Union Beach faces four charges, including weapons possession and robbery.
Jack allegedly threatened to stab an individual with the needle during the commission of a robbery in Hazlet on July 16. Police say he then fled from Keyport Patrolman Michael Tristao when the officer tried to arrest him.
Bail was set at $10,000. He remains in custody at Monmouth County Correctional Institution in Freehold Township, according to the Monmouth County Sheriff's Office
