“On, January 15, at approximately 11:30pm, an Armed Carjacking occurred near our campus. At that time, an individual who is not affiliated with the Stevens Institute of Technology, parked his 2008 Honda Accord on the 600 block of Sinatra Drive, Hoboken. He left his vehicle momentarily and upon reentering his vehicle, the driver was approached by 3 unknown male subjects, all wearing dark clothing and ski-masks,” Stevens Police Chief Timothy Griffin said in a Timely Warning Notice issued today.

“At that point, one of the individuals brandished a handgun and struck the driver on the head several times with the gun. A second individual produced a knife and threatened the driver who was then forced to the ground. The three individuals then entered the vehicle and fled South on Sinatra Drive leaving the victim injured on the ground. The victim immediately contacted police and was treated at the scene for his injuries by EMTs.”

He continued that both the Hoboken and Stevens Police Departments searched the area to locate the vehicle and the suspects, but were unsuccessful. Griffin deferred comment to the Hoboken PD this afternoon since they are the lead agency on the case.

“I can confirm that the Hoboken Police Department’s Investigations Bureau is actively investigating an armed carjacking which occurred in the area of Sixth Street and Sinatra Drive in the late evening hours of Jan. 15, 2024,” city spokeswoman Marilyn Baer said following an inquiry from HCV.

“Officers are attempting to locate the stolen vehicle, which is a blue, 2-door, 2008 Honda Accord. Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact Detective Bret Globke at Globkeb@hobokenpdnj.gov.”
