By rlsmetro on

Hudson County authorities are on the search for a suspect wanted for a violent carjacking that occurred at a Walmart in Kearny Sunday night.

According to a preliminary investigation, a shopper returning to their car, in the parking lot, was approached by a suspect who initiated a strong-armed robbery just before 6:40 p.m.

Police say the suspect wrestled away the victim's 2020 red Hyundai Elantra before speeding from the parking lot.

During the violent struggle, police say the victim suffered non-life threatening injuries after the suspect dragged them with the car a short distance.

The vehicle has a reported NY license plate number "HUT-9297," and police are looking for a medium build Hispanic male who remains at-large.

The incident remains under investigation.
