Police Seek Help Identifying Robbery Suspects and Locating Vehicle

Newark Public Safety Director Fritz G. Fragé requests the public’s help identifying the pictured suspects and locating the suspect vehicle used to rob a victim on May 20, 2024.
Police officers responded to the incident at approximately 5:54 a.m. in the 80 block of  16th Avenue. The victim was at a bus stop when two Black males got out of a white,  2017 Infiniti Q70 on Littleton Avenue. They approached the victim, demanding that he give up his personal belongings. The victim complied and turned over his bookbag containing two cell phones, debit and credit cards, and other personal items. The suspects fled in the 4-door  Infiniti, which was driven by another unknown suspect traveling eastbound on 16th Avenue.
The vehicle, owned by SaJadah May Hodge, had a temporary license plate (C070959) and was captured on surveillance video returning to the 100 block of 7th Street. Hodge is wanted for questioning and the vehicle has been flagged as a felony vehicle.
Suspect #1, a Black male with a medium build, was wearing black clothing, a yellow traffic vest, and a face mask. Suspect#2, a Black male with a heavy build, was wearing a black hoodie, tan pants, and a face mask. On May 28, 2024, the driver was observed outside of the vehicle in the 400 block of Central Avenue. The vehicle has also been seen in the area of Avon Avenue and Irvine Turner Boulevard.
