AUDUBON, NJ (September 15, 2020)--A Gloucester City resident was charged with causing more than $10,000 in damage to a house in Audubon recently by throwing landscaping stones at the residence. The suspect, Nicholas Hionas, 38, of Gloucester City appeared in Camden County Superior Court last Thursday, according to the Courier Post.
The judge ordered Hionas, 38, to remain in custody in connection with an incident that terrorized two women in the home. The women took refuge in a garage while Hionas allegedly bombarded a West Graisbury Avenue home during the Sept. 1 incident, Assistant Camden County Gina Imperato said at a detention hearing.
Hionas is accused of 'taking landscaping stones and throwing them through every window along the front of the residence," says a probable cause statement for his arrest.
Audubon police responded to find Hionas standing outside the house, with his hands in the air and the knives on the ground.
The suspect's public defender, Brad Wertheimer, argued for Hionas to be returned to Philadelphia, where he'd been living with a relative. A criminal complaint identified Hionas as a Gloucester City resident.
