A New Jersey man and woman could spend five to 10 years in prison for stealing a cellphone and $16 last week, according to Thursday reports.

Anthony J. Stackow, 37, allegedly punched the victim in the face and body while Alyssa Santiago, 32, rifled through the victim’s pockets stealing the cellphone and $16 cash, the Jersey Journal reported Wednesday. Stackow also faces a criminal mischief charge for smashing the cellphone on the ground.

The pair’s first appearance in court Tuesday determined they would be detained for the course of their prosecution. The case will be heard in court by a superior court judge Thursday.

The pair stands charged with second-degree robbery, which carries the five to 10 year sentence. Stackow’s additional criminal mischief charge could add to his sentence, however.

The victim, whose identity has not been released, told authorities he recognized Stackow and Santiago as his cousin’s friends. He declined medial treatment despite Stackow’s alleged violence.
