Newark NJ Man Posts Bail in Attempted Murder Case, Allegedly Carjacks Woman in Jersey City

Newark NJ Carjacking SuspectA Newark New Jersey man suspected of being involved in a 2014 shooting was recently arrested on new criminal charges stemming from a violent carjacking incident in Jersey City.

The suspect was arrested last month in connection with a violent shooting in 2014. Although the suspect allegedly shot a man on August 28, 2014, he was not apprehended until September 23, 2016.

The suspect later secured his release from police custody by posting bail. According to authorities, the suspect committed another violent crime just five days after he posted bail in the amount of $150,000. The suspect has now been accused of committing a carjacking just five days later. According to law enforcement, the suspect grabbed a woman’s car keys and stole her vehicle.

The suspect, a 30-year-old man who lives on Leslie Street in Newark NJ, now faces a number of very serious criminal charges, including carjacking, aggravated assault, and resisting arrest because he allegedly kicked and punched officers while being placed under arrest. These charges are in addition to the attempted murder charges for the non-fatal shooting of the 21-year-old man in 2014.

Prosecutors said that the suspect shot the victim while he walked on Martin Luther King Drive in Jersey City, NJ.

The suspect reportedly has a checkered criminal past that includes serving prison time for a drug crime conviction.
