Maplewood authorities are looking for a suspect wanted for an armed robbery in the township on Tuesday night. 

According to Maplewood Police Chief Jimmy DeVaul, at approximately 10:25 pm, a male walking on Burnett Avenue near Tuscan Street was robbed at gunpoint. 

Chief DeVaul said while the victim was walking, a silver SUV drove up next to him then stopped. 

A male passenger asked the 23-year-old victim what time it was and then exited the vehicle demanding his belongings.

“At this time, the passenger displayed a handgun and went through the victim's pockets,” Chief DeVaul said. 

The actor took the victim's cell phone, Ipods, wallet and cash before reentering the vehicle, which fled towards Union on Burnett Avenue.  

According to Chief DeVaul, following the robbery, the victim returned to his home in Union before contacting the police. 

The victim was not injured during the incident. 

The Maplewood Police Department is actively investigating this incident.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the Maplewood Detective Bureau.
