TO: ALL NEWS MEDIA
FROM: ACTING BERGEN COUNTY PROSECUTOR GURBIR S. GREWAL

Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. GREWAL announced the arrest of 21- year-old TYRONE “TIZZY” STEPHENS of 271 Rosemont Place, Englewood, New Jersey (DOB 3/28/1995), on charges stemming from a home invasion robbery that occurred on June 2, 2016 in Englewood, New Jersey. The arrest is the result of a joint investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office under the direction of Officer in Charge, Deputy Chief Robert ANZILOTTI, the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department under the direction of Sheriff Michael SAUDINO, the Englewood Police Department under the direction of Chief Lawrence SUFFERN, and the Bogota Police Department under the direction under Chief Daniel MAYE.

On June 2, 2016, at approximately 11:29 p.m., five males entered an apartment building on Lafayette Place. All of the males were armed, four with handguns and one with a shotgun. The males entered the building and walked to the second floor and targeted a specific apartment. The victims stated that one of the suspects knocked on the door, and once opened, the suspects tried to force their way in. The victims were able to prevent the door from being fully opened and wrestled the shotgun away from who has now been identified as Tyrone STEPHENS. One of the males armed with a handgun then fired three rounds into the apartment. None of the victims were injured by the gunfire. The five males fled the scene leaving the shotgun behind. The Englewood Police Department was contacted and responded to the victims’ apartment for a call of “shots fired".

Through subsequent investigation, TYRONE “TIZZY” STEPHENS was identified as the male who was armed with the shotgun. An arrest warrant was issued by The Honorable Susan J Steele, P.J.Cr. for STEPHENS charging him with three counts of Attempted Murder, one count of Armed Burglary and one count of Endangering the Welfare of another person. Bail was set by Judge Lisa Firko, J.S.C. at $750,000 with no ten percent option and conditions of “no contact” with the victims.

On August 25, 2016, STEPHENS was located and arrested without incident at an address in Bogota, New Jersey. He was remanded to the Bergen County Jail in lieu of bail.

It should be noted that STEPHENS is the second suspect arrested for this home invasion robbery; the first being COREY MCKAY, date of birth 06/20/1996. MCKAY was arrested on June 12, 2016 by the Englewood Police Department, and he is currently being housed in the Bergen County Jail in lieu of bail. This investigation is ongoing, and at this time, three other suspects remain at large. Anyone with information on the remaining suspects is asked to contact the Englewood CrimeStoppers Tips Line at 844-466-6789 or the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Tips Line at 201-226-5532.

Acting Bergen County Prosecutor GREWAL states that these charges are merely accusations and that both defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and would like to thank the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department, the Englewood Police Department, and the Bogota Police Department for their assistance with this investigation.
