Robbery on East Main Street

On October 7, 2021, at about 2348 hours, Newark Police responded to the 100-block of East Main Street for a report of a robbery at an ATM machine.  Upon arrival, the officers contacted the female victim, who advised that she was withdrawing money from an ATM machine adjacent to the sidewalk.  As she walked back to her vehicle, she was approached by a male suspect who took the money from her hands.  She briefly fought with the suspect in an attempt to retain the money and the suspect ran away with the money.  A witness attempted to assist the victim fighting off the suspect.  The witness then followed the suspect and observed him flee the area in a vehicle.  The witness attempted to chase the suspect vehicle, but ultimately lost contact with the vehicle.

The suspect was described as a white male, bald, about 30 years of age, 5’9″ – 5’10” and wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with a white undershirt and dark pants.  The suspect was wearing a red face mask.  He fled in a 4-door passenger car.
