Police apprehended several suspects responsible for a carjacking and several armed robbers in Newark early Friday morning.
According to a preliminary investigation, police responded to reports of a carjacking in progress in the vicinity of 475 Avon Avenue before 5:30 a.m.
When officers arrived at the scene, they were informed that suspects conducted a carjacking at that location.
Police say they found the vehicle occupied by suspects and attempted to pull the driver over when a brief pursuit occurred but ended after the car slammed into a pole near the intersection of Bedford and Springfield Avenue.

Officials reported no serious injuries in the carjacking.
Springfield Avenue is closed in both directions for the crash investigation.
