PARAMUS, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- A woman held up two New Jersey clothing stores with a butcher knife and tried to escape on a Jitney bus, police say.
“The cashier reported she was unable to open the cash drawer so the suspect fled, discarding the knife in the parking lot and boarding a Jitney-style bus,” Deputy Chief Robert Guidetti said in an email to NJ.com.
Cops say she pulled off a similar robbery at the Garden State Plaza earlier this month, when she took $900 from the Abercrombie & Fitch Kids store, and hitched a ride on a Jitney.
Following the latest incident, Paramus police stopped a westboiund bus near Ikea Drive and Travers was arrested.
She has been charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree attempted robbery, and fourth-degree weapons possession.
