Authorities captured four Philadelphia men who they said beat and tased two victims during a gunpoint robbery in Edgewater late last year.

The victims were attacked when they arrived at the Riello Apartments on Gorge Road before dawn on Dec. 8, 2019 by a quartet who held them at gunpoint while beating them, tasing them with a cattle prod and robbing them, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said Friday.

Detectives from Musella’s office and the Edgewater Police Department identified four suspects who were all arrested Wednesday at their homes with help from the FBI and Philadelphia Police Department, the prosecutor said.

Charged with kidnapping, armed robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, conspiracy and various weapons offenses are Derrick Felder, 39; Tarik Driver, 44; and Stephen Driver and Aburbarka Ham, both 42.

All four remained held in Philadelphia pending extradition proceedings, Musella said.

He thanked Edgewater and Philadelphia police and the FBI.
