Carjacking thwarted — NJ Top News
Here are the top New Jersey news stories for Wednesday:
WINSLOW — A New Jersey man visiting a local bagel shop had to jump into action to stop his car from being stolen.
The victim, a 30-year-old man from Sicklerville, went to Jersey Bagel & Food Mart on Monday morning shortly before 11 a.m., according to the Winslow police.
He parked his car but left it running unattended as he went into the shop on Sicklerville Road.
NEW BRUNSWICK — Two individuals reported being grabbed in intimate areas as they walked near Rutgers University late Monday night.
Rutgers University police said both victims reported that someone had run by and touched them.
The first incident happened around 11:20 p.m. on College Avenue between Seminary Place and Hamilton Street. The second incident was at 11:45 p.m. two blocks away near Hamilton Street and Easton Avenue.
HILLSIDE — One person is unaccounted for after going back into a burning home to rescue pets early Tuesday morning.
The fire started inside a single-family home on Conant Street around 2 a.m., according to Deputy Fire Chief Keith Ryan.
Flames spread quickly, reducing the home to a pile of burned remains with only two walls left standing.
The fire also torched two cars in the driveway and damaged neighboring structures.
New Jersey residents don't know much, or anything at all, about two Democrats hoping to take over the seat of embattled New Jersey U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez in 2024, according to a poll released Monday out of Rutgers University.
But the same poll suggests Senate hopefuls Andy Kim and Tammy Murphy are in a better position than the Democratic incumbent, who's facing federal charges of bribery and other serious offenses.
NEW BRUNSWICK — Excitement has been bubbling for the first-ever appearance of the Rutgers University marching band at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.
A year ago, the Marching Scarlet Knights were selected among 10 bands for the iconic 97th annual parade — for the first time in the band's 108-year history.
