Police in Irvington believe that suspects wanted for over a dozen armed robberies in the Township was taken into custody in Passaic County Thursday morning.
Residents in Irvington were lined up at the police station to make incident reports stating that several suspects with guns approached them on streets in Irvington and robbed them of personal possessions.
Police are also attempting to determine if the suspect were responsible for a violent attack on a gas station attendant on Bloomfield Avenue in Newark early Wednesday morning. In the incident, the assailants arrived at the Millenium Gas Station and reportedly demanded cash from an attendant before the aggravated assault.
This is what a resident told RLS Media:
“There were a string of robberies in Irvington. My daughter was involved and was held at gunpoint alongside the father of her children.
They were in the car and when the cops finally came, they were responding to another robbery around the corner on Nesbit Terrace.
Everyone went to make a report at the police station. There were more than 20 people there, including a man that had his Range Rover stolen.
I hope you can find more information about this”.
The gun-wielding teens also reportedly drove around Newark, committing robberies.
According to Irvington officials, three juveniles were arrested in Paterson Wednesday for occupying a car stolen from the Township.
Officials told RLS Media that the car, a white 2021 Toyota Highlander, is believed to have committed several robberies in Irvington and Newark.
Both departments are investigating the matter at this time.
