Police Nab One of Three Masked Burglary Suspects


Police in Newark chased down several armed men wanted for possible burglaries in the city's South Ward a short time ago.

At around noon today, three masked black males were seen entering a garage in the 30's block of Bragaw Ave. when alert residents contacted authorities.

Rapid police response had officers on the scene to find several suspects running from that area.

According to reports, one of the men was wearing grey hoodie while the other was wearing a Burgundy jacket.

Spotted by police a short distance away officers attempted to question the men who fled on foot in several directions.

After a brief foot pursuit, police were able to apprehend at least one of the suspects who was later described as a juvenile.

The captured suspect was treated by EMS for a hand injury.

There were no reported injuries to police.
