Dina Manzo’s Ex-Husband Tommy Manzo Indicted As Accomplice In Home Invasion!

Tommy Manzo, the ex-husband of former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo, has been indicted as an alleged “accomplice” in the 2017 home invasion that left her and then-boyfriend, now-husband Dave Cantin beaten, tied up, and robbed, Monmouth County prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Tommy Manzo, who previously faced raps for hiring a Mafioso to beat up Cantin, has been indicted on charges, including robbery and stalking, prosecutors said, according to Page Six.

The 56-year-old turned himself in “without incident” and will be held pending an appearance at Monmouth County Superior Court, officials said in a news release. 

As previously reported, Manzo and Cantin were injured and taken to the hospital after two masked robbers allegedly attacked them in May 2017.  The couple were met by a pair of masked thieves when they walked into their Holmdel, NJ, home on May 13, police said. One intruder repeatedly struck Cantin with a baseball bat while another hit Manzo a number of times.

The crooks bound the couple together and then made off with an undetermined amount of jewelry and money, according to authorities.

James “Jimmy Balls” Mainello of Bayonne, was indicted on charges in 2019 for his alleged role in the home invasion. His lawyer said previously he expects him to be fully exonerated.

It wasn’t immediately clear what Tommy’s exact involvement in the crime was. But prosecutors said he was “indicted for his role as an accomplice” and an ongoing, four-year probe “ultimately uncovered Manzo’s role in stalking both victims and his motivations for the robbery and assault carried out by Mainello and another still unknown assailant.”

Tommy is facing numerous charges — robbery, aggravated assault, theft, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and criminal restraint. He was also hit with two counts of stalking charges related to the couple.

His lawyer denied the fresh allegations. “A reality TV show is more believable than the baseless claims against Tom Manzo,” Michael Critchley said in a statement via Page Six. “The indictment is much ado about nothing and Tom Manzo looks forward to ending this nonsense once and for all at trial.”
