NEWARK, NJ – Newark Public Safety Director Brian A. O’Hara requests the public’s help in identifying suspects in connection with a carjacking that occurred yesterday. At approximately 2 a.m., a man inside his vehicle, parked in the 300 block of Avon Avenue, was approached by a male who pointed a gun at him and ordered him out of his vehicle, a black, 2008 4-door BMW.
The suspect stole the victim’s wallet and other personal property before fleeing in the vehicle, heading east on Avon Avenue and turning left onto South 12th Street, where a second suspect may have entered the vehicle. While detectives investigating this incident are actively searching for these suspects, we seek the public’s help in quickly identifying them. Both suspects are Black males.
The first suspect is described as 6-ft. tall with a slim build. Director O’Hara urges anyone with information about these suspects to call the Department’s 24- hour Crime Stopper tip line at 1-877-NWK-TIPS (1-877-695-8477). All anonymous Crime Stopper tips are kept confidential and could result in a reward.
