42-year-old Shawn Custis was arrested in the lobby of a building on 10th Avenue in Inwood in Manhattan where his girlfriend lives according to WNBC TV by police and FBI agents. He was transported to an undisclosed location in New Jersey.

“We are forever grateful to the incredible team of law enforcement officers for their hard work over the past week. Thanks to these heroes, our family can now begin the next chapter of our healing,” the husband of the woman beaten in the invasion told WPIX TV. “We also want to thank everyone in the Millburn community, the Millburn Workmoms, and those from across the country for the outpouring of support.”

The arrest of Custis took place less than an hour after the  Essex County Prosecutor’s Office identified Custis as the man who entered the Cypress Street home and beat a mother as her daughter watched last Friday.

Part of the brutal attack was caught on the family’s “nanny cam.”

Custis faces first degree attempted murder changes, first degree robbery, 2nd degree burglary and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Police say the woman suffered a concussion, bruises, chipped teeth and cuts around her mouth. Bail is set at $750,000.
