By metrowriter on

According to Mountainside authorities, an armed robbery occurred on October 31 at 1:30 a.m. involving two suspects seen fleeing a vehicle. 

Authorities say the incident happened at the Express Fuel gas station at 1112 Route 22. The gas attendant reported that two suspects pulled into the lot in a gold Toyota Camry sedan while inside the building. 

One suspect entered the office, handgun in hand, demanding money from the attendant, then returned to the vehicle with the driver waiting inside, officials report. 

The vehicle then fled the scene but, as reported, was seen attempting to flee on Route 22 West rear-ending a Honda Civic. 

Officials say that the suspect was believed to have traveled the wrong way after traveling a short distance, correcting itself, and almost side-swiping a second vehicle recklessly trying to flee the scene. 

The suspected vehicle was last seen on Route 22 East after making a U-turn. 

No injuries were reported at this time.
