Teens report Linden street robbery

Two teens told police they were robbed of an iPhone on a Linden street by three men wearing masks — one of whom they said might have been carrying a gun.

The 14-year old girl and 15-year-old boy said they were walking in the 900 block of Chandler Avenue around 6:45 p.m. Monday when the trio approached.

One of the robbers “raised his shirt to expose a silver object in his waistband which may have been a gun, but the victim wasn’t sure,” Police Capt. James Sarnicki said this morning.

All three were described as dark-skinned, wearing dark jackets, blue jeans, and masks covering their faces, he said.

They fled on foot with the iPhone, the teens told police.

Sarnicki asked that anyone with information about the incident call police: (908) 474-8520.
