Police Seek the Public's Help in Identifying Armed Business Robbery Suspect

Newark Public Safety Director Fritz G. Fragé requests the public’s help in identifying the below-pictured male suspect in connection with an armed business robbery that occurred on Wednesday, October 5, 2022.
 
At approximately 12 a.m., Police responded to the Millennium Gas Station, located at 108 Bloomfield Avenue, on a call of a robbery. An armed suspect entered the gas station’s mini-mart through a side door and robbed the attendant of the store’s cash and his personal property at gunpoint. The suspect then fled, entering a white 4-door sedan, possibly a Chevy Malibu or Impala, with tinted windows and no front license plate.
 
Detectives investigating this incident are seeking the public’s help in quickly identifying this suspect. He is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5’6” tall with a light brown complexion and a medium build. He was wearing a black leather jacket, black pants, a gray skull cap, and black shoes. 
 
Director Fragé urges anyone with information about the identity of this suspect to call the Division's 24-hour Crime Stopper tip line at 1-877-NWK-TIPS (1-877-695-8477). All anonymous Crime Stopper tips are kept confidential and could result in a reward.
