Judge Rules Man Unfit to Stand Trial

Tony Kadyhrob, 70, of Princeton Pike allegedly grabbed a Rider University coed and tried to force the 19-year-old into his car in 2011.


A Mercer County Superior Court judge on Tuesday ruled that Tony Kadyhrob – a 70-year-old Lawrence Township man who allegedly grabbed a Rider University coed and tried to force the 19-year-old into his car in 2011 – is not mentally competent to stand trial, according to a report published by The Times of Trenton.

The judge made that determination based on multiple mental health evaluations, The Times reported.

The alleged incident happened on Rider’s campus in Lawrence Township on March 28, 2011. In July of that year, a grand jury indicted Kadyhrob – a resident of the 2000 block of Princeton Pike – on attempted kidnapping and luring charges.

Shortly after Kadyhrob posted bail in March for the Rider incident, police said he was spotted on The College of New Jersey campus in Ewing.

A judge banned him from setting foot on any school or college campus in New Jersey and was he ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

Princeton Borough Police later spotted Kadyhrob on a street just blocks from the Princeton University campus on April 6. 

Kadyhrob was detained by police but released without charges because he was not actually seen on any school property.

When did Christopher Walken move to Princeton? Guess he wanted more cowbell.
