Authorities in Newark are seeking the public's help identifying four suspects involved in an armed carjacking.

The suspects pictured above approached a man sitting in his vehicle near Hamilton Street and New Jersey Railroad Avenue on Tuesday around 6:45 p.m., police say.

One of the suspects pointed a weapon at the victim and demanded his vehicle, police say.

Another male suspect then approached the passenger’s side window and pointed a handgun at the victim, according to police.

The two suspects robbed the victim of his cash and personal property before fleeing southbound on New Jersey Railroad Avenue, police say.

The first suspect is described as possibly Hispanic or black, with a brown complexion and a dark-colored twist hairstyle, police say.

The second suspect is described as having a light or tan complexion and was wearing a hooded sweater with white lettering on the front at the time of the carjacking, according to police.

Two other individuals stood by as lookouts, police say: The third suspect is described as a man with a lighter complexion who was wearing a gray hooded zippered jacket, black sweatpants and black and white sneakers at the time of the incident.

The fourth suspect is described as a female who was wearing a black hooded sweater, blue jeans and black Nike shoes.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of these suspects is urged to call the 24-hour Crime Stopper tip line at 1-877-NWK-TIPS (1-877-695-8477) or visit www.newarkpd.org. All anonymous Crime Stopper tips are kept confidential.
