Three Woodbury residents who hospitalized a Woodbury resident for a week in a violent home invasion at the end of July have been caught and jailed, according to the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office.

William Robinson, 29, of Woodbury was arrested at the home of a Deptford acquaintance on August 2; 38-year-old Milton Miller of Mantua Twp. was picked up in Woodbury on July 31, as was a 17-year-old Woodbury resident whose name was not released due to his juvenile status.

Authorities say the three men forced their way into a unit in the Woodbury Court apartments, allegedly stealing an unspecified amount of cash and assaulting two adults within with a hammer and baseball bat. 

One of the victims was hospitalized at Cooper Medical Center in Camden for a week with a broken jaw, eye socket and other lacerations, the Prosecutor's Office said.

Miller and Robinson were charged with robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, burglary, theft and conspiracy. Milton was jailed on default of $50,000 bail, and Robinson was jailed in default of $75,000 bail.

The juvenile surrendered voluntarily to the Woodbury Police Department; his disposition was not reported by the Prosecutor's Office.

The Prosecutor's Office credited its Fugitive Investigation Unit, officers from the Deptford and the Woodbury Police Departments, members of the FBI’s Violent Offender Task Force and a Monroe Township Police K-9 team in making the arrests.
