Brothers charged with robbing man outside of PATH station

Brothers who robbed a man of his cell phone made the mistake of sticking around Journal Square and were arrested Saturday.

A 55-year-old West New York man was at the Journal Square PATH plaza at 6 p.m. on Saturday when he confronted by the two men and punched in the face, Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo said. The men, both over 6 feet and 200 pounds, then took the victim's cell phone.

Given a description of the alleged robbers, Port Authority police canvassed the area and found Michael and Jonathan Jackson on the corner of Bergen Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard. 

Michael Jackson, 47, admitted to assaulting the victim and Jonathan Jackson, who also had a warrant for assault out of Jersey City, admitted to having the West New York man's phone. Their home address is listed as a homeless shelter in Union City.

The brothers were charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery and they were taken to Hudson County jail, Pentangelo said. The victim's cell phone was returned.

In August, Jonathan Jackson was charged with assault after two people said he attacked them in the Journal Square PATH Station. Jackson was pepper-sprayed in the incident, and the other two people were also charged.
