Police in Newark are turning to the public in identifying carjacking suspects.
A man inside his vehicle parked in the area of Fairmount and Central avenues was approached by a male driver and male passenger who got out of a gray 4-door newer model Honda Accord and demanded his vehicle around 8:15 a.m. Saturday, April 10, Newark Public Safety Director Brian A. O’Hara said.
After taking the victim’s car keys, the second suspect drove away with the victim’s vehicle, heading north on Fairmount Avenue.
The second suspect, inside the gray Honda Accord, headed south on Fairmount Avenue, then west on West Market Street, police said.
