Police in Newark are investigating two armed robberies that occurred in the city’s North Ward Sunday afternoon.
According to police, the first robbery occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. when a black male suspect pointed a gun at the victim in the 20’s block of Heller Parkway and demanded personal possessions.
The suspect reportedly exited a dark colored Kia wearing a gray hoodie police said.

In the second robbery, police say they responded to a holdup report at a gas station at Verona and Mount Prospect avenues where a suspect, who fit the description as the man in the Heller Parkway incident, robbed the station of an unknown amount of cash before he fled the scene in a dark colored Kia.
Both incidents remain under investigation.
