Ex-Girlfriend's New 'Lover' Charged In Bat, Pipe Attack

Daniel Chaupiz, 20, of Wyckoff, was arrested and charged with robbery for allegedly beating and robbing a man lured to Lincoln School by the man's ex-girlfriend.

The lover of a Wyckoff woman charged with luring her ex-boyfriend to a schoolyard for a savage beating and robbery was arrested Friday for allegedly carrying out the pummeling, police said late Friday.

Daniel A. Chaupiz, 20, of Crescent Avenue, was arrested at his Wyckoff residence hours after at Lincoln School with a baseball bat and a pipe Thursday night.

Police claim Tocci, 19, of Wyckoff, asked her ex-boyfriend to drive around with her in a new Ford Fusion she recently purchased. They drove to Lincoln School at around 10:30 p.m. when Tocci reportedly suggested they go for a walk.

Chaupiz, according to Wyckoff Police Chief Benjamin Fox, was waiting at the schoolyard with a baseball bat. He was joined by an accomplice who reportedly wielded a pipe, Fox said.

"The men beat him as Tocci allegedly watched," Fox said. "The men took his wallet and removed the cash, as well as his cell phone [which] they smashed. The victim was left bleeding on the ground, and the men got into Tocci's car and she drove them away."

The victim, bloodied and battered, walked to a nearby residence and was later taken to the hospital, suffering from head injuries that required stitches, Fox said.

Reached for comment Friday afternoon, Chaupiz denied any role in the alleged assault and robbery and said he was never at the scene.

Fox said the motive remains unclear at this point and the investigation remains open.

Tocci was arrested following a traffic stop on Franklin Avenue at 3 a.m. driving the blue Ford Fusion, Fox said. She was charged with robbery by force and was remanded to jail, unable to post $50,000 bail.

Chaupiz was subsequently arrested Friday by a sergeant conducting surveillance on his Crescent Ave. residence.

Police say a vehicle driven by a "known associate" of Chaupiz was pulled over and upon investigation, police say they found Chaupiz lying across the seat.

Chaupiz was charged with robbery, a first degree charge. He was remanded to Bergen County jail, unable to post $100,000 bail.

Police are familiar with Chaupiz. He was charged for obstruction of justice in March for an . Months earlier, he was charged with robbery for allegedly causing a ruckus in a Fair Lawn grocery store.

"The investigation is continuing to apprehend and prosecute one other person who was involved in the attack, and perhaps a third man," Fox said.

This guy steal a grill too? Poor folks on Crescent ave need to chain their webers to a pole. Bet he has 20 grills in garage

It is appropiate that this one now has some quality timer with a cellmate named "Bubba". Maybe that will straighten him out. What he needs is a few years in Trenton State for this one. Myself I will trust in Chief Fox and his department for a full investigation that will bring an end to this one man crime spree that he seems to enjoy. I will lay odds that our detectives will package him up nicly and deliver him into thet hands of NJ justice.

Where are the parents??? Time for wyckoff pd to crack down on the young rif raf, how is this girl really smiling for her mug shot??? They must come from upstanding families.
AML July 28, 2012 at 02:44 PM
It is an absolute disgrace! If this girl did in fact orchestrate this vicious beating, perhaps a swift slap to her face is in order to knock out her teeth! How dare she smile from ear to ear for her mug shot? Has she no shame, no morals, no intergrity? Even though she is 19 years of age, if she lives at home, then the parents should bear responsibility for her actions! Did she earn the money to buy a new car, or, was it givent to her? And did not her parents worry if she were still out at 3AM? If I were her parents, I would be embarrassed to walk around town! That poor boy could have been killed! What makes people take up weapons to savagely beat another human being for no justifiable reason? She should be put in jail for a long time. She would literally die if she had to wear prison garb as her vanity definitely showed through her mug shot! She is more guilty than the person who swung the bat, if indeed, it is proven that she was the mastermind behind the attack.

The 19 year old ridgewood boy, margos ex, was a sadastic over bearing boyfriend who enjoyed hitting margo for multiple unknown reasons.
b July 28, 2012 at 04:40 PM
^ that is true. margos ex abused her for a really long time. this was going to happen at some point to that ridgewood kid no matter what anyone says. dont make him out to be an innocent victim. he beat the crap out of her.

A bat and a metal pipe? I wouldn't know where to find a metal pipe other than a game of CLUE.
CrimeWatcher2 July 28, 2012 at 05:16 PM
Is the victim white? This could be a hate crime.
Joe videodummy July 28, 2012 at 05:25 PM
Well Jonny bananas, then he had it coming. But it can't be premeditated, involve other's, or involve any weapons i.e. bat's, clubs, pipes, etc. The last thing you don't do is become an accessory to your own retaliation. It's very satisfying to beat down a man that beats up woman, but you have to do it without getting caught, and that means the woman who is being beaten can't know or ever find out. Generally, the beater quickly understands that when he beats her, you beat him. Try it, it's great exercise and very uplifting.

Hey Ryan Dolan! You usually take time off of what I'm assuming is a pretty pathetic life to make a comment defending some of Wyckoffs biggest scumbags. I.E... Tj Risseeuw , alfred Wiek, ralph zocco and who seems to be your favorite Mr. Chaupiz. If I'm not mistaken did you not write this quote after his recent arrest for obstruction of justice... "you think they would get it threw there thick heads the kid is clean" Now Ryan I would really love to know if you still think that this kids "clean" his crimes have gotten progresavly more serious, I mean it started with him eating some food off the shelf at a stop and shop honestly, is it illegal yes but is it that bad no it doesn't make him a bad person but! Wen he starts committing crime after crime some being felonies there becomes a massive problem. Chaupiz obviously thinks he is above the law or at the very least doesn't care a single ounce about it, or the safety of our residents I hope they finally they lock up this utter waste of human flesh and throw away the key for good.
Jennifer Nowak July 28, 2012 at 09:12 PM
whether it was "deserved" or not they shouldnt have taken matters into their own hands! that girl is old enough to know better. if he was her ex, then why lure him...leave him be. if he was still bothering, let the police handle it.

the problem is we are not thinking. she is your x move on . as for punishment do onto others as you have done onto you a eye for a eye .

Looks like she has quite a bit of the FIght Club in her blood too as someone who knows her posted in the Barstoolsportnyc site: "by podzy on July 27, 2012 at 3:37 pm This chick went to school with me first semester at Scranton, she got kicked out for fighting with her roommate and f@%#*& every upperclassman she could. she got banged out multiple times during orientation and hooked up with my roommate This is fucking awesome…".

What the heck is going on in Wyckoff? Who are these low-lifes and where did they come from?
The Raptor August 03, 2012 at 12:10 AM
That is also unacceptable, but her actions and behavior are total ghetto. If he was hitting her, then address it like a semi-normal person. There is too much data out there on her unfortunately and she's not close to semi-normal. She and her friends should enjoy prison.
