Newark NJ Domestic Violence SuspectNewark NJ police are trying to locate a man accused of committing an armed robbery after a domestic violence incident was reported at a local home.

The allegedly committed the theft around 3:00 a.m. Newark police got a call about the domestic violence incident and immediately sent officers to the scene.

A couple of Newark NJ police officers showed up at the 15th Avenue home and spoke with the robbery victims. All of the victims were a bit shaken because they had reportedly been threatened with a handgun during the robbery. The suspect allegedly got away with the victims’ cell phones as a result of the theft. Prior to exiting the premises, the suspect allegedly fired his handgun into the air.

Newark NJ investigators were able to determine the suspect’s identity after talking to the victims and other witnesses. According to law enforcement, the suspect is a 25-year-old male who lives in Newark, New Jersey. He reportedly used to date one of the victims.

If Newark law enforcement can locate and arrest the suspect, he is likely to face criminal charges for armed robbery and aggravated assault. A conviction on the most serious charge of armed robbery could result in a sentence of 10-20 years in New Jersey State Prison because the crime is classified as a first degree felony.

Additionally, given the suspect’s reported relationship to one of the victims, he could also be subject to a restraining order. The restraining order would be handled in a separate proceeding from the criminal charges.
