Eddie Canary, Hoboken basketball star charged with robbery
Eddie Canary, a junior at Hoboken High School and First Team All-County forward for the Hoboken Red Wings was charged with robbery and two counts of inflicting bodily injury and more charges may be on the way as there were two different alleged robberies.
With the first one, the victim was approached by a group of men. One man allegedly took $15 out of the victim’s hand. Afterwards, someone reported that Canary then assaulted the victim leaving him knocked out with a broken collar bone. The victim later learned that this wallet was stolen.
With the second case, the police were looking for Canary a short while affter the first robbery. When they caught up to him, they allegedly found him and assaulting another man. He tried to run off but was caught. While it doesn’t seem like anything was stolen, the State may charge him with attempted robbery based upon the first case.
Unless an attorney can pull of some amazing work, it looks like his basketball career is over. I’ve had worse and kept my clients out of prison. Robbery cases are weird like that, at least for me. They are very serious but great deals can be worked out.
