Police in Newark are on the search for two women who are wanted for robbing a man while they carried an infant in Newark’s South Ward.

Police say it happened at around 9:45 a.m. when a man waited at the NJ Transit number 99 bus stop at the corner of Bergen Street and Watson Avenue where the victim told police that he was approached by two women, one of which was carrying a baby.
