The victim entered his residence in the area, Pedersen said, but the suspect followed and the assault “continued inside the residence until the suspect fled the scene.”

The victim sustained abrasions but refused medical treatment, said Pedersen.

With the description of the suspect, officers were able to locate him in the area. The suspect was then identified as Kayvon Tinnery, 23, of Brick. Officer Brian Williams arrested Tinnery and charged him with burglary, terroristic threats and simple assault.

Bail was set by the Deputy Court Administrator in the amount of $35,000 cash, police said. Tinnery was transported to the Ocean County Jail.
