Police said a Red Bank man who preys on Hispanics carried out a home invasion on Oct. 25 on South Lyerly Street while armed with a knife in one hand and a hammer in the other.
Trevale Demarco Davis, 24, of 107 Baxter St., is charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.
Police said Davis has carried out similar home invasions against Hispanics at least twice.
A man said he was home with his wife and two children when a black male forced his way in the front door. He said the man came into his bedroom with the knife in his right hand and the hammer in his left hand.
He said the man demanded money, but he told him he had none. However, he said the robber grabbed his $29 wallet from his dresser. It had $800 cash, his ID and other cards.
The victim said the man searched a second room, but did not take anything else.
Police said there was clear evidence that the front door had been pried open.
Police on Nov. 2 showed the man a photo lineup. Police said Davis' photo was included because he matches the physical description that was given and "he also has a history of committing these offenses."
The victim picked out Davis from the lineup.
Police said Davis at the time was on state probation for aggravated burglary.
