Clifton NJ police recently apprehended six teenagers who allegedly committed armed robberies of people delivering Chinese food in the area.
According to Clifton law enforcement, the suspects include an 18-year-old male from Clifton NJ, three 17-year-old boys who live in Passaic, and a 14-year-old boy from Passaic, NJ.
Both theft incidents happened in early December 2015. The teen suspects allegedly robbed individuals who were delivering Chinese food in Clifton, New Jersey.
One of the victims was reportedly robbed and assaulted at the intersection of Third Street and Sylvan Avenue in Clifton, NJ. He suffered severe injuries when the suspects allegedly used a pipe to hit him repeatedly.
Clifton detectives were able to capture two of the teenage suspects at a residence located on Howe Avenue in Passaic, New Jersey. The other suspects were apprehended by Clifton police a few days after that.
Clifton NJ police said that the suspects are being investigated for similar robberies in neighboring municipalities, so it’s possible that they could face additional criminal charges.
After being placed under arrest and charged, the adult suspect was transported to the Passaic County Jail. Meanwhile, the five underage suspects were remanded to the Essex County Juvenile Detention Center.
