Authorities in Newark are looking for a set of thieves who jumped inside a vehicle that was reportedly left running at a gas station in the city.
According to preliminary reports, police were called to 1256 McCarter Highway at approximately 9 p.m. to investigate reports of a strong-armed carjacking where the victim reported that the suspect forced them from the vehicle then sped away in the car.
Units arrived at the scene and determined that there was no strong-armed carjacking but the suspects stole the car while it was left running.
The suspects took a black Hyundai Sonata and were accompanied by assailants occupying a white Mercedes who fled towards Clay Street.
The investigation remains active and ongoing.
