Police Arrest Suspects in Newark NJ Carjacking

Newark Carjacking Law FirmPolice officers recently captured two men suspected of committing a carjacking in Newark, New Jersey.

The suspects are a 21-year-old man from Elizabeth NJ and a 21-year-old man from Newark NJ. According to law enforcement officials, the two suspects approached a car that had come to a stop on the 100 block of Chestnut Street in Newark around 4:00 p.m.

The suspects reportedly threatened the man behind the wheel of the car and ordered him to give them the vehicle keys. However, the victim ignored the commands and instead drove away at a high rate of speed.

The victim later dialed 911 to alert the Newark Police Department to the attempted carjacking incident. Newark NJ cops subsequently searched the neighborhood and soon located the two suspects.

The suspects were placed under arrest and charged with carjacking.

If the suspects are ultimately convicted of the violent criminal offense, they could each face up to 30 years behind bars in NJ State Prison. That’s because carjacking is considered a special kind of first degree felony in New Jersey and carries enhanced penalties.
