HOBOKEN -- Police are investigating an attempted carjacking at gunpoint in the Maxwell Place development that took place the night of Dec. 2, police said this week.
A victim and a witness were visibly shaken up when they were found by Hoboken police, according to a police spokesman.
One of the victims, who is a personal trainer, was placing gym apparatus in his Jeep with a client when a man (approx. 5’11”, 180 lbs, facial hair, African-American) came up behind them and allegedly said, “Give me your keys; I have a gun,” according to a police report.
The witness spotted a black handgun and ran, yelling to call 911. The victim also ran and then locked his truck remotely. The carjacker ran toward a garage, according to the victim.
The detective on the case has not yet been able to sit down with the victim, a police spokesman said on Thursday.
