Any crime or robbery can be terrifying, and recently Kim Kardashian’s BFF and frequent ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ personality Jonathan Cheban was the victim of one such crime. The worst part is that this awful event happened in front of Jonathan’s mother, in Bergen County.
Reports say that Cheban was in Englewood Cliffs with his mother and a friend, and while he was exiting from his car, a man held him at gunpoint and took his $250,000 Richard Mille watch. According to the Englewood Police, they responded to a 911 call reporting an armed robbery at about 8:30 p.m at East Bayview Avenue.
Jonathan Cheban was so terrified that he told the robber to take anything he wanted after he pointed the gun at his mother’s head. As per the statement given by Cheban to the Police, the robber asked him what time it was, then flashed a silver semiautomatic handgun.
The man and another male suspect later fled the scene on foot to Sylvan Avenue, they said. A K-9 unit was dispatched to track the men, but they were not found. Cheban sustained a minor injury to his wrist, while his mother and friend were unharmed.
Englewood Cliffs Police shared a sketch of the suspect on Facebook describing the man who held Cheban and his mother, as a dark-skinned Hispanic man in his late 20s to early 30s wearing light blue jeans, a purple shirt and white and grey sneakers. The other suspect is described as a heavyset Hispanic man wearing a grey sweater.
According to reports in Hollywood Life, a source said, “Jonathan went to Englewood Cliffs to trade in a car and take some of his belongings somewhere, and he got robbed with his mom and her friend by his side. They were all then on their way to dinner when this happened. The watch is actually worth much more money than what’s being reported.”
The source added, “He’s really shaken up, as is his mom. He just hates that his mom had to see this. Everyone’s OK, though, despite everything.”
