Attempted Carjacking in Hoboken!
Man robbed at gunpoint near Maxwell Place in Hoboken, NJ
10pm Update: See comments section. Man was still robbed at gunpoint, but was slick to prevent car theft.
Found out that earlier today – a man was robbed of his SUV at gunpoint near Maxwell Place uptown!
From what I heard, two “well dressed” black males approached this man, who is a trainer at a local gym and was meeting a client – brandished a gun, and forced him to hand over his brand new Jeep Cherokee and drove away. Police are currently investigating this theft.
Crazy – you’d think that our affluent waterfront community would be free of such crimes – with a dense population, video cameras, 24 hour doormen and routine police patrols. I guess that’s one of the many downsides when everyone is heads-down looking at their nonsensical status updates.
