UPDATE: Elmwood Park police captured one of two men who they said robbed a 15-year-old boy of his cellphone Thursday night.
Linden Browne-Jones, a 44-year-old Barbadian national living in Lyndhurst, was taken into custody around 2 a.m. Friday with help from Lyndhurst police, Elmwood Park Police Chief Michael Foligno said.
He was charged with first-degree robbery and possession of a weapon -- a folding knife that the chief said was used to rob the teen on Market Street around 8 p.m.
The victim told police he was walking near the CVS when Browne-Jones and an accomplice got out of a red SUV and approached him, Foligno said.
One of the robbers “brandished a black and silver folding knife and held it to the victim's chest and demanded everything he had,” while “threatening to stab him,” the chief said.
"The victim only had a cell phone, which he handed over,” Foligno said.
The robbers got back into the SUV and took off, he said.
Browne-Jones's LinkedIn profile says he most recently worked for UPS as a warehouse employee.
