On May 7, 2013, 21-year-old Parrish Wood was charged with armed robbery of a pizza delivery man. Parrish Wood, also known as “P Gun” and “Pistol,” was the leader of the gang involved in the robbery. The incident occurred on November 30, 2012, at Quincy Circle in a parking lot in South Brunswick, NJ, when the delivery man was trying to deliver a pizza to a residence in the building of an apartment complex on Quincy Circle. After the resident had told the delivery man that he did not order a pizza, the delivery man went back to his vehicle with the pizza. When he got to his car, he was approached by 3 male suspects who told him that the pizza was for them. As the delivery man was getting the pizza from his car, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and put it to the delivery man’s head demanding money. The 3 male suspects grabbed the pizza, the victims money, and his wallet and fled the parking lot in an older dark minivan.
Detective Ron Seaman was working the case and was able to link the location of Parrish Wood through his cell phone site information around the time and place the robbery took place. On May 7, 2013, only a few months after the robbery, Wood was arrested and convicted of several armed robberies involving pizza deliveries and is currently serving his time at the Middlesex County Correction Center on a $100,000 bail.
