Nutley NJ Carjacking SuspectA Nutley NJ woman was recently a victim of a carjacking attempt in Jersey City, New Jersey.

The carjacking incident took place around 1:30 p.m. The 30-year-old suspect was reportedly victimized when she dropped off her sister on Danforth Avenue near Kennedy Boulevard in Jersey City, NJ.

The victim arrived at her sister’s house and unlocked her vehicle door. At that moment, the suspect allegedly opened the car door and attempted to enter the vehicle.

The woman yelled at the man to get out of the car. She pushed him until he exited the vehicle, at which point she closed and locked the driver side door.
