The incident occurred at approximately 11:36 p.m. on January 15th, on the 600 block of Sinatra Drive, when three individuals in ski masks approached a victim and pulled him out of his car demanding his cellphone, the Hoboken PD said in a statement.

The victim reported one individual produced a gun and hit him in the head with it, and another threatened him with a large combat-style knife.

The individuals took the cellphone and fled in the vehicle, which had personal property inside, including power tools and recording equipment worth a total value of approximately $2,300.

The Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps arrived to treat the victim who had injuries to the head. He refused further medical attention. Responding officers located the cell phone in Hoboken while canvassing the area that night.

The vehicle, a 2008 Honda Accord, was located a few days later in the Bronx and the recording equipment was found in Jersey City.

Further investigation by Det. Bret Globke and the Hoboken Detectives Bureau revealed an additional four other individuals were involved in this crime.

Anyone who can identify the individuals above or provide any additional details is asked to contact Det. Globke at Globkeb@hobokenpdnj.gov or Sgt. William Collins at Collinsw@hobokenpdnj.gov.
