The incident occurred on March 24th at 1:30 PM when the victim, a resident of Newark, rented a U-Haul truck from the Tonnelle Avenue store to pick up cargo from New York City. Upon returning the truck, he was assaulted and robbed of some of the items he had picked up.

The victim was hit over the head and on the back of his arms by three assailants. One of the assailants demanded the keys to his car, while the other two had a U-Haul van that they were controlling. All three suspects fled the scene towards West Side Avenue. Most of the stolen cargo was recovered, except for one box that remained inside the stolen truck. The van used by the other two assailants was also stolen.

The victim was able to contact the police from the U-Haul store, where he received medical attention for his injuries. He had left a jacket inside the stolen U-Haul that contained a significant amount of cash.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing, and details are still being confirmed. The individuals responsible for the carjacking have not yet been identified. Anyone with information is urged to contact tips@northbergenpd.com.
