Police Seek the Public's Help in Identifying Carjacking Suspects

Newark Public Safety Director Fritz G. Fragé requests the public’s help in identifying the below-pictured suspects in connection with a carjacking that occurred on Thursday, March 9, 2023. 
Just before 11:15 p.m., a man stepped out of his vehicle, leaving it running in the 100 block of Poinier Street, to lock a gate when a black Infinity sedan approached. A male passenger exited the vehicle brandishing a handgun. The suspect, wearing a green jacket, black sweater, black pants, green skully cap, and a ski mask, took the victim’s vehicle, a white 2017 Buick LaCrosse, and fled east on Poinier Street towards Route 21. The vehicle was later recovered in the 500 block of 18th Avenue.
The below-pictured suspects were observed attempting to make ATM transactions at a 7-Eleven in the 300 block of Elizabeth Avenue on Saturday, March 11, 2023.
Director Fragé urges anyone with information about the identity of any of these suspects to call the Police 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.
