Search on for suspects after woman kidnapped, forced to withdraw $9K in Newark

The search is underway for the suspects who forced a woman into a van and then made her withdraw thousands of dollars from her bank account.

Police responded around 4 p.m. on July 3 to the 100 block of Adams Street.

Authorities say the suspects grabbed the victim by the arm and made her get into a blue Toyota Sienna where they threatened her and demanded money.

They took her to Santander Bank on Ferry Street where she withdrew $9,000 while one of the suspects waited outside to take her back to the vehicle.

Police say the suspects then drove the victim to the 300 block of Ferry Street and let her out of the car.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call the Police Division’s 24-hour Crime Stopper tip line at 1-877-NWK-TIPS (1-877-695-8477).
