Armed Robbery in North Bergen
The North Bergen police department is searching for four men accused of robbing a seventeen year old at gunpoint over the weekend. According to the reports, a seventeen year old male exited a bus in North Bergen and after doing so he quickly found himself surrounded by four males. One of the males was wearing a ski masked and armed with a handgun. He demanded that the juvenile turn over everything in his pockets. The juvenile conceded to the defendant’s demands, turning over his wallet, $70 in cash, a cellphone and black watch. Once the defendants received what they were looking for they took off in a two door car heading towards Union City, New Jersey. The defendants are described as Hispanic males, approximately 18 or 19 years old and about 5’7 tall.
If arrested, charged and convicted, these four individuals could be looking at upwards to twenty years in a New Jersey state prison.
