Robbinsville administration dealing with aftermath of arrest

ROBBINSVILLE - Township leaders and residents on Wednesday were dealing with the aftermath of a shocking series of assaults this week that ended with a township officer in handcuffs.

  • Sgt. Mark Lee remained hospitalized following his Monday night arrest. A source close to the situation said numerous tests were being conducted by doctors and psychiatrists.
  • The township administration will be bringing in special counselors this week to deal with officers’ issues following the arrest, said Mayor David Fried. He said after taking care of the victims, they had to take care of the police as well.
  • Lee, one of four sergeants in the 26-officer department, worked closely with the other officers on a daily basis, Fried said. He said it made sense to make sure they were all right.
  • “These officers, who had to arrest him that night, have worked with him every day,” he said. “They all know each others’ families.”
