Alhafeez Williams, 29, of Newark, N.J., is seen in an undated photo provided by the Newark Police Department. Former Newark Mayor Sharpe James was allegedly attacked from behind Thursday, April 11, 2013 in front of 1065 Bergen Street by Williams, who placed the 78 year-old James in a choke hold prior to grabbing a gold chain from his neck and fleeing on foot. Former Mayor James was not injured during the incident and investigators scoured the area seeking information on the identity and whereabouts of Williams, who several hours later contacted police prepared to surrender.
