Arrest made after Kardashian pal robbed of $250K watch in NJ
Federal authorities in New York City have brought charges in the armed robbery of Jonathan Cheban, a reality TV pal of Kim Kardashian.
Victor Rivera is accused of stealing a $250,000 watch at gunpoint from Cheban in August in Englewood Cliffs. The self-styled culinary influencer known as “Foodgod”
has appeared on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and other shows.
The suspect was arrested in Miami on Friday and will go before a judge there early next week, prosecutors said. There was no immediate word on whether Rivera has a lawyer.
The holdup occurred in August when Cheban was arriving at a friend’s house in Englewood Cliffs, police said. Two men approached and asked for the time before pulling a gun and making off with the victim’s Richard Mille timepiece, police said.
Rivera, 29, also is charged in another robbery involving a Richard Mille watch in June in New York. Prosecutors say a victim was shot and wounded in that incident.
