Robbery at check-cashing outlet
Submitted By Officer Robert Norvell, Newark PD
On July 6, 2011 at approximately 9:11 a.m., Newark Police Department (NPD) officers responded to the Check Stop (7052 Jarvis Avenue) on the report of an armed robbery that had just occurred. Two men entered the business, both armed with handguns. The suspects held a cashier at gunpoint, demanded cash, and fled the scene prior to police arrival. The suspects apparently left on foot, as no related vehicle was seen.
The suspects were described as black male adults of undetermined age. They stood approximately five feet 10 inches tall. They both wore black pants and hooded sweatshirts.
