Two Newark NJ Teens Accused of Robbery, Drive-By Shooting

Newark New Jersey Robbery AttorneysNewark NJ police arrested two teenagers accused of committing a violent robbery and a drive-by shooting in the same week.

The first criminal incident occurred on September 14. The victim, a local Newark resident, was walking toward a bus stop at the intersection of Stone Street and Park Avenue when the teenage suspects allegedly approached him and robbed him of his wallet and other personal possessions.

On September 22, just over a week later, the suspects allegedly committed another crime in Newark NJ. According to law enforcement, the suspects drove past an Irvington NJ man walking on Alexander Street and fired multiple gunshots in his direction.

The victim sustained at least one gunshot wound and required treatment at University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey.

Meanwhile, the suspects reportedly escaped capture by driving off and fleeing the scene in their motor vehicle.

Detectives with the Newark Police Department investigated both violent crime incidents and eventually identified the two suspects as the likely culprits.

Members of the Newark Police Department Fugitive Apprehension Unit later tracked down one of the suspects walking along the 200 block of Chancellor Avenue. The second suspect was then arrested while walking on the 600 block of 15th Avenue in Newark, New Jersey.

Both suspects are 16-year-old residents of Newark, NJ. They face criminal charges for armed robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, and conspiracy.

It is unclear at this time whether the suspects have been charged as adults or juveniles, which could affect the severity of the penalties in their respective criminal cases.
