ROBBERY

On January 12, 2015 a 20 year old Bloomfield man was robbed of his BEATS headphones as he walked on 1st Ave. near N 16th St. The victim reported to police that at 5:15 pm he was approached by a group of 5 males wearing face masks as he was walking east on 1st Ave. The group of suspects demanded that he give them his headphones and when he refused they jumped him taking the headphones by force before running away north on N 17th St.

The victim also reported that he recognized one of the suspects and gave investigators what information he could. A 17 year old Bloomfield resident later turned himself in to the Bloomfield Police Department Juvenile Unit. The investigation continues for the other four suspects who could only be described by the victim as being black males wearing black masks.

BURGLARY

1/12/15 – A residence on Oakwood Ave. was burglarized between 8:30 am and 10:00 am. There were no signs of forced entry however the victim reported finding the back door of the residence wide open. A large amount of cash was taken from the home and Bloomfield Detectives are following some leads in the investigation.

1/14/15 – On Oak Tree Lane a resident reported a diversionary theft where three males posed as township workers to gain entry into his home. At approximately 12:00 noon the three suspect’s approached the home and told the victim that they were investigating a chemical spill in the area and needed access to the house to check the water. During a forty-five minute period, two of the suspects entered the home and diverted the homeowner’s attention by checking water pipes, and engaging in conversation. It is believed that during this time frame the third suspect entered the home and stole the cash from a lockbox and a safe. Anyone who has experienced similar incidents or anyone that has information regarding this crime is asked to contact the Bloomfield Police Department Detective Bureau at 973-680-4084.

On January 8, 2015 a 62 year old business owner was robbed at gunpoint while working in his store on the 400 block of Bloomfield Ave. The victim reported to police that at 5:50 pm the suspect entered the store talking on his cell phone. Once inside the store, the suspect revealed a black handgun and told the victim to give him his money and jewelry. As the victim was turning over his belongings the suspect broke a gold bracelet off of his wrist. In an attempt to get his property back the victim went around the counter and confronted the suspect however the suspect put away the handgun and pulled out a knife instructing the victim to “back up” before fleeing east on Bloomfield Avenue, then onto Sherman Court or Hill Street. The victim described the suspect as being a Hispanic male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and backpack in his early 20s with a mustache. The total estimated value of the property and cash stolen was estimated to be approximately $6,800.00.

On January 9, 2015 a 52 year old East Orange resident called the Bloomfield Police at approximately 11:19 am to report that he had been robbed approximately 15-20 minutes prior while walking on JFK Drive South in the area of Locust St. The victim, who was not injured in this robbery, stated that two black males came out of a car and pointed a gun at him as they relieved him of a bag he was carrying containing identification documents, a Samsung tablet and approximately $5.00 in cash.
