VENTNOR — A Mays Landing man was arrested Tuesday evening after police say he assaulted a city liquor store clerk and stole cash.

At 5:09 p.m., Ventnor police received a 911 call from an off-duty Atlantic City police officer reporting a robbery at North Beach Liquors, 5113 Ventnor Ave., according to a news release from police Capt. Joe Fussner. The off-duty officers gave police a detailed description of the suspect and the direction he ran.

City police officers found and arrested 39-year-old Siewon Nimley, according to the release.

During a transaction, Nimley had assaulted the clerk and taken cash from the register before running from the store, police said. He didn’t use a weapon.

Both Nimley and the clerk, whom police did not identify, sustained minor injuries.

Nimley was charged with robbery, simple assault, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession of drug paraphernalia and was taken to the Atlantic County jail.
