Maplewood Resident Robbed at Gunpoint, Attacked


Maplewood Police officials are on the search for a suspect wanted for an armed robbery in the township Monday morning. 

Police said at approximately 06:48 a.m. Halloween morning, the Maplewood Police Department received a call of a male being assaulted in front of his home on Meadowbrook Place. 

Officials said Maplewood Patrols responded to the area and were flagged down by a 49-year-old male resident reporting he was just approached by a black sedan and robbed at gunpoint. 

According to police, approximately three to four black males exited the vehicle, with one brandishing a handgun and physically assaulting the victim, throwing him to the ground. 

The unknown suspects removed the victim’s wallet, cell phone, and keys, officials said. 

Police say, the assailants were last seen entering the black sedan traveling toward Elmwood Avenue.

The victim refused medical attention on scene and suffered swelling around his left eye.
