On Wednesday, Aug. 21, two Hispanic males robbed three East
Orange teens at gunpoint on MacArthur Ave., police said.
The victims told police the two robbers passed them as they were walking on MacArthur Ave. around four that afternoon. They said the suspects called something out to them that they didn’t understand.
One of the suspects unzipped his jacket revealing what the victims believed was the handle of a black handgun and told the victims to “give me everything that you all got.”
The victims gave the suspects a white iPhone, a black Metro PCS phone and cash. Police said the robbers fled on foot towards Watsessing Ave.
The victims described the man carrying the gun as a 6’ light skinned Hispanic male, 6’ approximately 24 years of age with a “jawbone Beard” and hair that was tight on the sides and bushy on top wearing a navy blue jacket, white tank top and faded blue cargo shorts. He was also described as having a deep voice with no accent.
The victims described the other man as a muscular 5’4” tall, Hispanic male wearing a blue Yankee’s cap, a black tee shirt with white skulls on the front and blue basketball shorts with white stripes on each side.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Bloomfield Police Department Detective Bureau, Detective Lou Vitiello at 973-680-4089.
