Paramus NJ Police Look for Men Accused of Carjacking, Eluding Police
Paramus NJ police are searching for two men who allegedly committed a carjacking at a local golf store and then eluded police on the Garden State Parkway.
According to authorities, the 50-year-old victim, who lives in Upper Saddle River NJ, was a customer at the PGA Supercenter on Route 17 in Paramus. The victim walked through the store parking lot and had just gotten into his car when the two suspects reportedly approached him.
The victim later told police that one of the suspects implied that he had a handgun. The suspects allegedly instructed the victim to get out of his car. The victim complied with the suspects’ demands and exited the vehicle.
The suspects then allegedly told the victim to hand over his cell phone, which he also did.
The suspects then reportedly got into the victim’s car and fled the area by driving down Route 17.
Paramus police were quickly notified of the alleged theft. A short time later, a police officer tried to stop the stolen vehicle as it entered the Garden State Parkway. A high-speed pursuit followed, with officers chasing the suspects down the highway. Unfortunately, the suspects managed to get away near the area of the Essex Toll Plaza and exit 149.
Thankfully, the victim was uninjured in the alleged carjacking incident. According to police, the stolen vehicle is a 2015 Mercedes Benz S550.
Paramus police are actively investigating the incident. Anyone who has information about the suspects or the reported carjacking should contact investigators at 201-262-3400.
