Police in Newark took two suspects in custody after an armed carjacking that occurred in the city's South Ward overnight.

According to police, suspects produced a weapon and demanded a 2005 Ford Explorer from the victim in the area of 55 Dewey Street before midnight.

Police canvassing the area found the vehicle and attempted to pull the driver over who ultimately led officers on a high-speed pursuit that touched off in Irvington and Hillside, according to police.
