Carlos Flores, 44, surrendered to police who had charged him with burglary, simple assault, theft, criminal mischief, harassment, and trespassing, Detective Lt. Kevin Van Saders said.

Flores pushed in the front door of the victim’s Brookchester Apartments home around noon last Thursday, assaulted a family member and grabbed the phone, Van Saders said.

He was sent to the Bergen County Jail after surrendering on Friday and was ordered released by a judge less than 24 hours later under New Jersey’s 2017 bail reform law.

No serious injuries were reported.
