The evil home-invader, whose savage beating of a young mother in her home in Milburn, NJ, was captured on nanny cam, has been caught!

Our TrailDust had posted about this 5 days ago. See “Unarmed Mother Beaten,” June 25, 2013.

The Daily Mail reports that Shawn Curtis, 42, was arrested in Manhattan on Friday after police identified him from the nanny cam images and released an old mug shot of Curtis to the public.

With her baby boy sleeping upstairs, the young mother was watching morning cartoons with her three-year-old daughter on the couch when Curtis kicked in the bolted front door and savagely attacked the woman.

According to NBC4,  the woman said she was afraid to cry out in case it made her daughter scream, which would anger her attacker. “I knew that if I started screaming, my daughter would, too, and I was afraid she would get hurt. I took it. I didn’t cry the entire time.”

Punched and kicked at least 16 times, the mother was treated in a hospital for concussion and extensive bruises to her face and body. She had several chipped teeth and received stitches near her mouth.

The robber made off with an undetermined amount of jewelry, according to NBC News. But not before shoving his victim down the basement stairs.

Curtis had been released from prison in December, where he was serving a sentence for burglaries in New Jersey. He now faces charges of attempted murder, robbery, burglary and child endangerment, and is being held on $750,000 bail.

  1. Good, keep him locked up!

  2. Give him to the people. Why should he continue to get three square meals a day and cable TV?

    • Will, that does seem like it would save money, and I guarantee you the crime rate would drop real quick. Big deal he’s going back to jail.
      Home away from home. Give all criminals something to think about before they do that. Street justice for about 1 week would do it.

  3. It will cost at least US$ 25,000 a year to keep this psychopath in prison.He should be out working to earn the money to pay for her dental work, medical expenses, and all the counselling she and her girl will require, indefinitely. Only then will he know the true costs of his evil actions.

    That poor black man just wanted some money to eat! Jeez bunch of racists!

  5. Prison didn’t help him before, why put him there again and cost the taxpayers more money to support this dirt bag, hang him from the highest tree, he doesn’t deserve life, he is a detriment to society.

  6. Judging from the video tape–this joker has “mad dog” syndrome. Lets hope that the officials keep him locked away a long, long, long time, if not forever.

  7. Now I see I need to wear my gun on my holster even at home.

  8. I hope he gets stabbed to death in prison.

    I am african american and I want to go buy a metal bat and beat this guy so bad his head pops off!! Believe me, they’ll beat him down behind bars because he is a punk. I hope whoever stands by him gets the crap beat out of them too.

  10. I wonder how long it will be before his mama is on t.v. proclaiming , ” He’s a good boy , he just fell in with the wrong crowd “.
