NORTH WILDWOOD – North Wildwood police officers last month arrested a New York City man and charged him with attempted burglary after a witness described the suspect to an officer and the officer remembered seeing him.

On March 21 , North Wildwood officers responded to a call on an attempted residential burglary in the area of 1100 JFK Blvd. The witness had observed a white male, wearing a paintball mask, attempting to gain access to a condo through a sliding glass door.

After the witness provided the description of the male, Officer Zach Frame recalled seeing the described individual in town. Det. Joseph Kopetsky was able to obtain a photo from video surveillance cameras in the area Frame had seen the suspect.

With the assistance of Cape May Police Department, the suspect was identified as Nicholas Alexander-Gutierrez, 44, of New York City. A warrant was issued, and he was arrested shortly thereafter.

Alexander-Gutierrez was charged with third-degree criminal attempt to commit a burglary and was transported to the Cape May County Correctional Center.

The North Wildwood Police Department reminds residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the police. If anyone has any information related to this case or any other criminal activities, they are asked to contact the department’s Detective Division at 609-522-2411.
