The surrounding neighborhood surrounding The Quincy has been the target of several crimes over the years. On Nov. 30, 2012, a delivery man went to a nearby apartment complex to deliver a pizza. However, the apartment’s resident stated that he did not order a pizza, and the delivery man returned to his car. At that point, three men approached him from behind, stating they ordered the pizza. When the delivery man went into his car to retrieve the pizza, one of the suspects put a handgun to the man’s head and demanded money. The three suspects then stole the man’s wallet and pizza before leaving the area and running to a nearby parking lot, where they left in a minivan. Local police were able to locate and apprehend the leader of the three men using cell phone information retrieved at the site around the time and area of the robbery. The gang’s leader was later linked to that location.
A shooting occurred nearby in the New Brunswick Apartments complex on Oct 7, 2015. Sometime after three or four shots rang out about 9:30 p.m. that night, the victim walked into nearby Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. Police later returned to the scene to pick up gun shell casings.
