Police are looking for two suspects accused of committing an armed robbery in Camden, NJ.
According to officials, the theft occurred a little before 3:00 a.m. at the intersection of North Constitution Road and Hornet Road in Camden, New Jersey. The two suspects allegedly approached a man who had stopped his car, a 2008 Chevrolet Suburban with a New Jersey license plate.
The suspects then allegedly help up the victim. The victim later notified police and said that the two suspects were brandishing black handguns when they walked up to him.
The victim reportedly gave the suspects several personal items, including his wallet, cell phone, and car keys. The suspects then allegedly got into the victim’s car and sped off.
The victim contacted the Camden County Police Department, which dispatched officers to the area. Police spent some time searching for the suspects; however, they were unable to locate them.
The suspects were described as two males wearing dark clothing.
If the suspects are eventually identified and located, they will likely be subject to significant criminal charges for armed robbery and carjacking. N.J.S.A. 2C:15-2 classifies carjacking as a first degree felony. A conviction on first degree carjacking charges could lead to a sentence of 10-30 years in New Jersey State Prison.
Camden County police are asking for the public’s help with the investigation. Anyone with information about the alleged carjacking or the suspects should contact the Camden County Police Department tip line at 856-757-7042.
