CLIFTON, N.J. -- A driver passed out as a pair of armed carjackers assaulted her companion before fleeing empty-handed, Clifton police said.
The couple told police they were getting into their 2018 Mercedes SUV after leaving the Dollar Tree store on Piaget Avenue around 7:15 p.m. Saturday when the bandits rushed them, Detective Lt. Robert Bracken said.

The couple described them as black, in their 20s and wearing dark clothing.
