YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Englewood police arrested one convicted felon and were looking for another in a pair of domestic violence incidents in which women and a teenaged girl narrowly escaped serious injury.

Tommy Dean

Tommy Dean, 56, was arrested yesterday morning after returning home following an incident the night before in which police said he threw a chair at his wife and then fled with $8,000 worth of her jewelry.

Although Dean denied stealing the jewelry, Detective Capt. Tim Torell told CLIFFVIEW PILOT , “our detectives are following some leads” that point to where it might be.

Dean was being held on $16,500 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with aggravated assault, threatening to kill and theft.

Charges also awaited 35-year-old ex-con Tremaine Alston ( photo, top ) after an incident around 10:45 last night, also in the city’s Third Ward, in which he’s charged with throwing a flat-screen television during an argument with his girlfriend.

The TV hit the woman’s 15-year-old daughter in the leg, causing injuries that required medical treatment, Torell said.

“There were a number of children in the home at the time of this incident,” the captain told CLIFFVIEW PILOT , “but thankfully there were no other injuries.

The state Division of Child Protection & Permanency was contacted, which is standards procedure “when the safety and well-being of children are at risk or an injury has occurred,” he said.

Alston is charged with criminal mischief and child abuse.

“These types of cases rightfully require a significant amount of time and resources by police officers,” Torell noted.
