Keith Williams, the 18 year old Monmouth University freshman football player arrested for the armed robbery that occurred on the West Long Branch campus last night, was wielding an imitation handgun that resembles a black semiautomatic handgun, according to Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni.
At approximately 9:17 p.m., on Tuesday November 1, 2016, Williams approached 2 female Monmouth University students who were walking on campus.
Wearing dark clothing and a mask, Williams demanded that the girls turn over their cellular telephones. The girls attempted to walk away and the individual produced what appeared to be a handgun and pointed it in their direction. The females then began to sprint in the opposite direction of the armed individual, who ultimately also fled the area without the cellphones or any other property.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Prosecutor | Tags: Keith Williams, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J.

This year’s MADE IN MONMOUTH ANNUAL EVENT now in its second year surpassed last year’s expectations and proved to be a win-win for both Monmouth County vendors and shoppers alike. The second annual ”Made in Monmouth” was held this past Saturday, September 28, 2013 at Monmouth University in West Long Branch. The event took place from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
This event was a proactive approach originated as a way to give Monmouth County Vendors an opportunity to display and sell their products. All products were made in Monmouth County and showcased an array of amazingly well crafted products. Many of the vendors were true artists and the creativity brought forth had no end.
As liaison to the Department of Economic Development, it gave me great pride as I walked around with my fellow Board Members and had an opportunity to meet and speak with the many vendors who participated in this fantastic event.
There were approximately 140 vendors in all with more than 2000 shoppers in attendance for the day.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, Tom Arnone | Tags: Amy Fitzgerald, John Ciufo, Made in Monmouth, Monmouth County Board of Freeholder, Monmouth University | 1 Comment »
