A violent carjacking in Paterson on Monday morning left a victim with non-life-threatening injuries after a brutal encounter with the carjackers.

The incident occurred around 9 a.m. in the vicinity of East 19th Street and 10th Avenue.

Paterson Police were swiftly dispatched to the community in response to reports of a carjacking in progress.

Upon arrival, officers found the driver suffering from lacerations and bruises. The victim recounted that armed suspects had attacked and forcibly removed them from their vehicle.

According to the investigation, the victim informed police that the carjacker had fled in their black 2015 Honda Civic with tinted windows and NY license plates.

Law enforcement officers thoroughly searched the neighborhood and spotted the stolen vehicle in the areas of 9th Avenue and Madison Avenue.

However, the carjacker recklessly evaded capture, leading to a dangerous pursuit through the neighborhood.

Throughout the morning, the suspect played a cat-and-mouse game with the pursuing police, taunting them as they attempted to chase down the stolen vehicle.

The situation escalated until the car was found unoccupied in the area of 192 Godwin Avenue around 2 p.m.

Currently, the carjacking suspect remains at large, and authorities are actively seeking any leads that might lead to their apprehension.

Residents are urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity related to this and any criminal activity to the Paterson Police Department as the investigation continues.
