Rendon, the township's acting assistant manager, according to a letter that Rendon's lawyer sent to the board. In the letter, lawyer Neil A.

Capt. James Nocco said the second one to arrive was assistant manager Vanessa Griswold, 36, of the Cedarbrook section of the city, who apparently panicked during the holdup and was shot in the face and the knee at about 7:55 a.m. The robber then handcuffed her and left her behind the counter, where she lay on the floor bleeding as the robber handcuffed the other employees.
