Attempted Armed Robbery At Fuel Stop
There was an attempted armed robbery at the Fuel Stop gas station at the corner of Pompton and Linden avenues on Wednesday night that resulted in a police search across several streets on the eastern side of Verona.
According to Verona Police Capt. Mitchell Stern, at 10:45 p.m. last night, two black males, both armed with handguns, approached the manager of the gas station. One of the suspects grabbed the attendant’s arm but the person broke free and suffered a minor injury from a fall to the ground.
The suspects did not get any cash from the gas station and fled on foot. Police from Cedar Grove joined the VPD in a search but the suspects were not apprehended. According to Stern, officers checked one car on Montclair Avenue, but its driver was not one of the suspects.
Stern stays the investigation into the incident is continuing. “We are looking at video,” Stern said. Police think the suspects may have arrived by car, but they do not have a description of the vehicle or license plates. If you have information that can help the police in this investigation, you are asked to call Det. Sgt. Banta at 973-239-5000.
