Newark NJ Men Accused of Crime Spree, Face Federal Carjacking Charges

Newark NJ Carjacking ChargesTwo Newark men are accused of stealing a Range Rover and leading police on a brief car chase through Newark, New Jersey.

According to authorities, the two suspects stole multiple vehicles over the course of a five-day period. During the crime spree, the suspects allegedly committed two carjackings; a third carjacking attempt reportedly failed when the victim fought off his attackers.

The suspects were eventually apprehended when police officers responded to a report of a stolen 2013 Range Rover. The suspects allegedly pulled an SUV in front of the vehicle at a Belleville NJ intersection. One of the suspects then allegedly pointed a handgun at the driver and physically removed the driver from of the vehicle.

The suspects allegedly led police on a brief chase through the streets of Newark, New Jersey.

The chase ended when the suspects reportedly rammed the stolen vehicle into two police patrol cars. According to police, the suspects then got out of the Range Rover and tried to flee the scene on foot; however, they were quickly apprehended by police officers.

The suspects appeared in federal court in Newark NJ to answer the carjacking charges.

If the suspects are ultimately convicted on the federal carjacking charges, they could be sentenced to up to 20 years in federal prison. Although a carjacking conviction typically carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, the penalties in this case could be enhanced because the suspects are accused of using a gun.
