Home Invasion Robbery on New London Avenue

On April 13, 2020, at about 0041 hours, Newark Police were dispatched to a residence in the unit block of New London Avenue for a report of a home invasion robbery that had just occurred.  Arriving officers contacted five male residents at the residence.  The residents advised that they observed a dark-colored sedan in the driveway in the rear of their residence.  One of the residents went outside and contacted the occupants of the vehicle, who were described as four black males.

One of the male suspects displayed a firearm to the resident and forced him into the residence.  Once inside the residence, the suspects, who were wearing masks covering their faces, contacted the other residents inside and ordered them to turn over personal property.  During the course of the incident, the suspect with the firearm struck three of the residents with the firearm causing lacerations.

Three of the residents received minor injuries as a result of being struck with the firearm.  They were evaluated at the scene by EMT’s from Aetna Hose, Hook and Ladder Company of Newark and all three refused transportation to the hospital.

The suspects fled the scene in the dark-colored sedan with the personal property belonging to the residents.  The suspects were described as four black males with no further description available.  One suspect displayed a handgun.
