Police Seek Public’s Help Identifying Business Robbery Suspect

Newark Public Safety Director Fritz G. Fragé requests the public’s help with identifying the below-pictured suspect, who robbed a liquor of $1,000 on September 14, 2022. 
Police responded to a call about a robbery that occurred at approximately 10:36 a.m. at Ironbound Wines & Spirits, located in the 100 block of Adams Street. The suspect walked into the store and made a gesture to an employee that he had a weapon underneath his clothing. He then took the money from the cash register and fled west on Lafayette Street near the Union Street intersection. 
The suspect, a Black male, was last seen wearing a green Doo-Rag, black sunglasses, a blue medical face mask, a black and green backpack, and a black T-shirt with a Major League Baseball team logo that said “Rays.” He also was wearing black pants, and black and orange Nike Air Max sneakers. 
Director Fragé urges anyone with information about the suspect to call the Police Division’s  24-hour Crime Stopper tip line at 1-877-NWK-TIPS (1-877-695-
