A young mother home alone with her two young children was brutally attacked and beaten by the suspect who then robbed her and fled on foot. Please help share this report and help catch this violent criminal before he harms anyone else.


For days, police worked to identify a suspect with no luck, but on Friday had a breakthrough, as Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and Millburn Police Chief Gregory Weber announced that warrants have been issued for the arrest of Shawn Custis, 42, whose last known residence was in Newark.

On June 21, the suspect broke into the victim’s home on Cypress Street in Millburn at around 10 a.m. The woman at the time was watching television with her 3 year old, while a younger child was upstairs, police said. What followed was a stunning assault that included the suspect throwing the woman down a flight of stairs. The 3-year-old child is seen on video surveillance sitting still on the couch as the woman is repeatedly pummeled.
