Police are looking for four suspects who allegedly committed a string of robberies in multiple North Jersey towns, including Paterson, Harrison, Belleville, and Union City.
The victim of the robbery in Harrison is a 45-year-old Harrison NJ resident. He was allegedly assaulted during the robbery. According to law enforcement, the suspects in this robbery attempt pulled up in a black vehicle as the victim walked in the area of South Fifth Street and Essex Street in Harrison, NJ. Four men then got out of the car, ran toward the victim, and started to punch him in the face.
One suspect reportedly threatened the victim with a handgun. However, the victim later said that he never actually saw a weapon during the robbery and assault.
The suspects allegedly got away with $30 in cash and several ID cards.
Police detectives are investigating the Harrison robbery and trying to identify the suspects. Investigators also believe that the same individuals could be responsible for other robberies in Paterson, Belleville, and Union City.
