Police Respond to Monmouth Medical Center for Carjacking Report

A report of a carjacking Wednesday morning has authorities in Lakewood investigating.

According to officials, just before 1 a.m. this morning, officers responded to Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus in response to carjacking that had occurred a short time earlier.

Responding officers learned that the victim, a 20-year-old Lakewood woman, was sitting in her silver 2018 Hyundai Sonata, in the the area of Route 9 and Liberty Drive when an unidentified man approached her and asked for directions.
