Suspects Sought for Newark Ironbound Robbery


Newark Police seeks the public’s help with identifying the below-pictured suspects who robbed two city residents on March 5. 

Officers responded to a call about a robbery that occurred around 3:47 a.m. in the 100 block of Adams Street. 

When they arrived, the female victim told officers that the suspects snatched her purse from the man she was with while they were walking on Adams Street.
