    Police believe David A. Hamilton Jr. is in the Trenton or Morrisville, Pa. areas

    A man wanted for sex crimes against children in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, was spotted crossing into Trenton on the Calhoun Street Bridge early Friday, police said.

    David A. Hamilton Jr., 47, is from Lower Southampton, Pennsylvania, where police on Wednesday issued a warrant for his arrest on "multiple sex offenses against minors," the town's police said in an online bulletin.

    Police say they suspect he is in the Trenton or Morrisville, Pennsylvania areas and urged people and local officers to keep an eye out for him along the Delaware River and its canal towpaths.

    A Trenton police spokesman said Friday afternoon he had no information about Hamilton.

    On Thursday, he was spotted in Morrisville and recorded on a surveillance camera riding a blue mountain bike in the area of East Palmer and Centre Streets at 8:10 a.m.

    He was wearing a "boonie" hat and dark jacket and light-colored shorts. Morrisville officers later found his 2016 Toyota Corolla in the 400 block of North Delmorr Avenue. 

    On Friday, Lower Southampton police said Hamilton was seen crossing the Calhoun Street bridge into Trenton at 12:15 a.m. Police did not say exactly how he crossed.

    Lower Southampton did not elaborate on the sex crimes he's charged with committing.

    Anyone who spots Hamilton is urged to call 911, police said.

    Anyone with information that could help locate him can call Lower Southampton Detective Sgt. Gerald Scott at 215-357-1235, ext. 344 or gscott@lstwp.org.

    The other robber was armed with a bat, police say

    Three masked men - two brandishing handguns - robbed a Krauszer's Food Store in Hamilton Thursday night.

    krau1.pngPhoto from Hamilton police 

    An employee from the store in the 1700 block of Greenwood Avnue called police at 8:45 p.m. and told responding officers that three males held up the business.

    Two had handguns, and one had a small black bat, and all wore masks and dark clothing, police said.

    After grabbing cash - at least one charged behind the counter - they fled the store on foot and out of sight, police said.

    Hamilton police, on Friday, released an  image of one of the robbers in action  behind the counter.

    No employees or patrons were injured during the crime.

    Anyone with additional information about the crime, or the robbers, is asked to contact Detective Dan Inman at 609-581-4035 or the Hamilton police tipline at 609-581-4008.

    The company operates two hospitals in Mercer County, as well as paramedic services

    Starting Saturday, ambulances from Capital Health in Mercer County will start providing emergency medical services (EMS) to a portion of Falls Township, Pennsylvania.

    And later this fall, the company will take over primary EMS in Morrisville, just across the river from Trenton, where the ambulance service in the town of about 8,500 is winding down.

    Falls Township is acting now because the Morrisville Ambulance Squad had covered emergencies in about 12 percent of their town, Falls leaders said this week.

    Falls Supervisor Chairman Bob Harvie said in a statement that Falls Fire Marshal Rich Dippolito was "very impressed and very comfortable" with Capital Health assisting the township with the area formerly served by Morrisville ambulances.

    The Levittown-Fairless Hills Rescue Squad will continue to be the primary medical responders for the majority of the 34,000 residents in Falls, LevittownNow.com reported.

    In a statement, Capital Health's EMS director, Jim Boozan said patients who are transported by ambulance will be taken to the medical center of their choosing. He said concerns about Capital Health "stealing" patients, or only taking patients to their facilities, are a nonissue.

    "You want to take them where they want to go, where their physician is, where their medical records are," Boozan said.

    The Capital Health service in Falls starts on Saturday, Sept. 22.

    In Morrisville, the town's rescue squad said last month they would close down by Nov. 1, after years of financial setbacks, prompting the town to seek a full time ambulance service, the Bucks County Courier Times reported.

    Capital Health plans to operate from the Morrisville squad's North Washington Street location, Boozan said in a statement.

    Capital Health operates two hospitals in Mercer County which bear the Capital Health name, in Trenton and Hopewell Township, as well as an outpatient center in Hamilton.

    The healthcare company also provides advance life support (ALS) paramedic service in Mercer County as well.

    Murphy, as a candidate, had pledged to stop the bear hunt. It starts Oct. 8. Watch video

    Bear hunt protesters are planning to gather Saturday outside Gov. Phil Murphy's official residence, two weeks before the controversial hunt -- which Murphy, as a candidate, had pledged to halt -- will begin.

    Murphy issued an executive order in August barring the bear hunt from state land, but said he lacked the legal authority to stop it altogether.

    Protestors.jpgA past bear hunt protest. (Ed Murray | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com)
     

    The protest on Saturday, organized by the BEAR Group, is from noon to 2 p.m. at the governor's mansion in Princeton.

    Murphy, who lives in Middletown, is heading out of state Saturday morning and will not be around during the protest.

    He and his wife, Tammy, have been hosting events at the mansion, known as Drumthwacket, and plan to eventually move there.

    N.J.'s ninth consecutive bear hunt is scheduled to begin on Oct. 8. A total of 409 bears were killed last year.

    About 40 percent of the 3,429 bears killed in the eight prior hunts were located on state land, off-limits this time due to Murphy's executive order.

    However, the state Department of Environmental Protection is selling just as many bear hunt permits -- 11,000 -- as in 2017, and New Jersey Sierra Club Director Jeff Tittel said hunting on private property is expected to increase.

    "It's a charade. It's privatizing the hunt to private land. The same number of bears will be killed," said Tittel, a hunt opponent who disputes Murphy's assertion about not being able to stop it.

    Murphy took office in January.

    His deputy press secretary, Alyana Alfaro, said Murphy is seeking to implement non-lethal alternatives to the bear hunt. She said that DEP is working with law enforcement and raising public awareness.

    "By ending the bear hunt on public lands last month, Governor Murphy acted to the fullest extent of his legal authority and has called on the Legislature to take action as well," Alfaro said.

    Listen to NJ.com on Alexa, or via a daily podcast

    State legislators have not voted on a proposed 5-year moratorium on bear hunting, first introduced in October 2016 by former Sen. Ray Lesniak.

    This year's bear hunt is scheduled to last for 12 days -- from Oct. 8 through Oct. 13, and from Dec. 3 through Dec. 8 -- in eight northern counties.

    David A. Hamilton Jr., 47, ran off after trying to take a New Hope police officer's firearm, authorities said.

    A Bucks County man wanted for sexually abusing children fought off a police officer and tried to take his firearm during a failed arrest Friday, police say.

    David A. Hamilton Jr., 47, of Lower Southampton Township, fled on foot into woods after the New Hope officer tried to arrest him about 4:30 p.m. in the area of Stoney Hill and Reeder roads in Solebury Township, according to a post from township police on Facebook.

    Authorities were continuing to look for Hamilton, Solebury police said in an update Saturday morning.

    The township police department released photos of Hamilton walking through a wooded area. A hunter took the photos and provided them to police, who confirmed the man is Hamilton, WPVI-6ABC reports.

    "He was last seen on foot wearing muddy shorts and T-shirt," Solebury police said on Facebook.

    Police ask anyone who sees Hamilton to dial 911 immediately.

    Lower Southampton police say on bucks.crimewatchpa.com they obtained a warrant Wednesday for Hamilton's arrest "for multiple sex offenses against minors."

    "Pay special attention to areas along the Delaware River and canal towpath," Lower Southampton police say in the alert.

    On Thursday, he was spotted in Morrisville and recorded on a surveillance camera riding a blue mountain bike in the area of East Palmer and Centre Streets at 8:10 a.m.

    He was wearing a "boonie" hat and dark jacket and light-colored shorts. Police later found his 2016 Toyota Corolla on North Delmorr Avenue in Morrisville, Bucks County.

    Then, at about 12:15 a.m. Friday, he was seen crossing into Trenton on the Calhoun Street Bridge, according to police.

    After trying to take the New Hope officer's weapon Friday afternoon, police launched an "extensive ground and aerial search," Solebury police said.

    "Additional searches are underway expect police activity in the area of Sugan Rd, Stoney Hill Rd and Aquetong Rd," township police posted on Facebook.

    Solebury police had asked residents to shelter in place until 11:30 p.m. Friday as the search continued.

    "Report any suspicious activity, if needed contact us to check unsecured out buildings, sheds and barns," township police wrote in a 7 a.m. Saturday update on Facebook. "Archery hunters who are out today, use caution and continue to check your surroundings."

    In addition to dialing 911 if Hamilton is spotted, police ask anyone with information that may help police locate him to contact Lower Southampton Township police Detective Sergeant Gerald Scott at 215-357-1235, Ext. 344, at gscott@LSTWP.org or by responding to Crimewatch via a tip.

    There could be a free dedicated hotline for New Jersey firefighters and emergency-healthcare providers who are in crisis.

    They put themselves in harm's way willingly, and without reservation. They face challenges other human beings run from. They keep us safe.

    Now it's our turn to give back.

    A new bill making its way through the state Legislature would provide a free dedicated hotline for Garden State firefighters and emergency-healthcare providers who find themselves in crisis.

    The measure recognizes that dealing relentlessly with injury, violence and often death can be a recipe for mental-health issues and substance abuse.

    "Emergency service workers and firefighters have tough jobs, and unfortunately, mental health problems often come with the territory," said state Sen. Fred Madden (D-Camden), one of the bill's lead sponsors.

    In a recent study cited by the lawmaker's office, one-third of first responders said they were diagnosed with either depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.

    Sadly, half of them also said they had not received treatment for their distress; nor had they been given training to prepare them for the emotionally devastating events they were likely to encounter on the job.

    Firefighters say hosing ritual reduces cancer risk

    The proposed legislation, which won approval from the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee last week, breathes new life into a program run by the former University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and discontinued about a decade ago.

    COP2COP, a similar program for law-enforcement personnel, is still in existence.

    Created after an alarming series of police suicides between 1996 and 1998, this first-in-the-nation program offers cops a confidential, safe outlet where they can engage with former peers who understand their issues and provide support without judging.

    Madden's bill, also under the lead sponsorship of Sen. Paul Sarlo (D-Bergen), would require the state Division of Fire Safety to work with Rutgers' University Behavioral Health Care, which oversees COP2COP, as well with emergency personnel, to create the new hotline.

    Called the New Jersey Fire and EMS Crisis Intervention Services, it would operate 24/7.

    Specifically-trained operators would learn counseling skills designed to help them handle problems such as marital distress, substance use and other sources of emotional turmoil that often go hand-in-hand with first responders' duties.

    Funding for the program, currently estimated at $250,000 at least, would come from fees collected by the fire safety division for code violations.

    More than 5,000 firefighters, both paid and volunteer, put their lives on the line for New Jersey residents every day. Ditto, nearly 28,000 licensed emergency medical responders.

    This bill is our small gesture of thanks, a way to tell these amazing men and women that we don't take their jobs - or their very real concerns - for granted.

    School kids and senior living residents come together. Watch video

    The oldest was 96 and the youngest was 2. 

    At YingHua International School in Kingston Friday, students joined residents of six different Brandywine Living facilities to form a human peace symbol marking the United Nations' International Day of Peace.

    The effort was the brainchild of Brandywine's Stephanie Gaber, whose job title is escapades producer.

    "We've done an Arbor Day program with this school before and it turned out really well and this program just strengthened our relationship even better," Gaber said.

    The residents were bused in from six different Brandywine locations, including facilities in Ocean, Monmouth and Somerset counties.

    Expo preview

    After the peace symbol, the students and residents renewed their friendships, exchanging greetings and hugs and posed for pictures. Some of the students presented their older friends with artwork.

    Franklin Park Fire District 2 supplied a ladder truck for an aerial view and the Kingston Fire Department closed the road for everyone's safety during the event.

    Did the Citizens lose this weekend? No, City routed Cardiff City 5-0. But it did lose in the Champions League midweek, 2-1 at home to Lyon.

    English football fans, rejoice!

    This week brought the first midweek matches for the teams in UEFA competitions, while the Carabao Cup third round takes center stage coming up Tuesday and Wednesday, before the UEFA Champions League and Europa Leagues take over once again in the middle of the following week. 

    In between all of those games, the teams will play in the Premier League.

    Which teams will be able to navigate the extra matches the best?

    Probably the ones that sit at the top of the table after six games.

    MONDAY RESULT

    Southampton 2-2 Brighton 

    SATURDAY RESULTS

    Fulham 1-1 Watford

    Burnley 4-0 Bournemouth

    Manchester City 5-0 Cardiff City

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Newcastle United

    Leicester Coty 3-1 Huddersfield Town

    Liverpool 3-0 Southampton

    Manchester United 1-1 Wolverhampton

    Brighton 1-2 Tottenham

    SUNDAY RESULTS

    West Ham United 0-0 Chelsea

    Arsenal 2-0 Everton

    THREE STARS OF THE WEEK

    Shane Duffy, Brighton

    The center back led the Brighton comeback on Monday, with a 67th minute goal. The Seagulls scored in stoppage time to pick up the 2-2 draw. Duffy was the Whoscored.com man of the Match with an 8.97 rating.

    Aaron Lennon, Burnley

    The Clarets are finally in the win column, after a decisive 4-0 win over Bournemouth. Lennon was a terror on the left side, with a goal and an assist. He was the Whoscored.com Man of the Match with an 8.68 rating.

    Jamie Vardy, Leicester City

    Had a goal and an assist, as the Foxes moved into the top 10 with a 3-1 win over Hudderfield. Vardy was the Whoscored.com Man of the Match with a 8.87 rating.

    STAR OF THE WEEK 

    Bernardo Silva, Manchester City

    The winger had a goal and an assist, as the Citizens routed Cardiff 5-0. He was the Whoscored.com Man of the Match with a 9.07 rating.

    Ronaldo sees red, Paul Pogba scores twice, in UEFA Champions League

    SEPARATION AT THE TOP OF THE TABLE ALREADY

    After six match weeks, there is already a clear hierarchy of teams in the Premier League.

    Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea look most likely to finish in the top three spots at the end of the season, although Chelsea may still hit some bumps in the road, as it did Sunday in the 0-0 draw with West Ham.

    The race for the fourth spot is already shaping up as a battle between Tottenham and Manchester United. It could come down to which club is willing to spend in the January window, and also which of the teams have to deal with midweek matches in the cup competitions in the second half of the season.

    At the bottom of the table, it seems very likely that Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town will be two of the clubs to get relegated. Both teams have two big problems: they do not score goals, and they allow many. They both have scored three goals, allowed 14, for a minus-11 goal difference. Each also has two points.

    While Newcastle sits in 18th place after six matches, with the same amount of points as the two teams below, the Magpies have a minus-four goal difference, and have played well in a few of their losses.

    The big question for Newcastle will be, can it score enough goals to stay in the league?

    Brighton, Southampton, Fulham, Burnley, and West Ham take up spots 13-17. Any one of those teams could be involved in the scrum at the bottom, but we will have to wait until the festive fixtures start to get a clearer picture.

    MANCHESTER CITY WEEKLY PREMIER LEAGUE UNBEATEN WATCH

    Did Manchester City lose this weekend?

    No, the Citizens routed Cardiff City 5-0.

    But Manchester City did lose in the UEFA Champions League midweek, 2-1 at home to Lyon.

    How long can the unbeaten run go in the Premier League?

    At least until the top of the table clash with Liverpool on Sunday, October 7 (11:30 a.m. EDT NBC Sports and Fubo.tv). City will host Brighton next week.

    CARABAO CUP RETURNS TUESDAY-WEDNESDAY WITH THIRD ROUND

    Defending champion Manchester City begins its quest to repeat Tuesday in the Carabao Cup with a road match against EFL League One side Oxford United.

    The tie of the round will take place Wednesday, as second place Liverpool hosts third place Chelsea.

    Authorities picked him up at a South Brunswick hotel

    Authorities arrested a 30-year-old Trenton man in South Brunswick this weekend on charges accusing him of the shooting death of 26-year-old Jibri Chisolm earlier this month

    Chisolm was one of two men shot in the 600 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Trenton just before midnight on Sept. 14. Responding police located the two victims on Bond Street and they were taken to Capital Heath Regional Medical Center, in the city.

    Stephan Green copy.jpgStephan Green (Mercer County Prosecutor's Office photo) 

    Chisolm was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

    The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office said in a Monday statement that Chilsom had been shot in the head and the abdomen. 

    An investigation by the Mercer County Homicide Task Force led to murder and related charges against Stephan P. Green, of Bond Street.

    The task force issued a warrant for his arrest Saturday.

    The U.S. Marshals' NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force located Green at a hotel in South Brunswick and arrested him at around 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

    Green is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder, two counts of second-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon and second-degree certain persons not to possess a handgun.

    He is being held at the Mercer County Correction Center pending a detention hearing, the prosecutor's office said. 

    The prosecutor's office did not name the other person wounded with Chisolm.

    A man shot his wife and 2 other family members in Trenton, then fled their house

    A Trenton man was at large Monday after shooting multiple family members during an argument at his home very early Sunday morning, police said. 

    A police spokesman said the man and his wife, 31, were having a verbal argument in their home on Maple Avenue in Trenton around 2:30 a.m.

    When the conversation began to get heated, police said, the woman's mother and brother tried to intervene.

    The husband pulled out a handgun and fired six rounds, striking his wife, mother-in-law, 57, and brother-in-law, 25, police said.

    He then fled the scene. 

    Police did not make public any names of the victims, or the husband, because the incident stemmed from a domestic violence incident.

    Authorities are unsure of the husband's whereabouts, and an investigation into the shooting is ongoing. 

    Emergency responders took the three victims to Capital Health Regional Medical Center for treatment. The wife is still being treated for her injuries, but her mother has since been discharged, police said Monday. 

    The woman's brother is currently in the intensive care unit for treatment of a gunshot wound to the chest.
