HOBOKEN – Police are still searching for leads after one of their vehicles was allegedly stolen last Saturday at 3 a.m., according to online reports.
Reports said that police initially responded to a large fight consisting of 80 to 100 people at 300 Marshall Dr. The fight was believed to be between two families who live in the Hoboken Housing Authority. The two families are allegedly part of an ongoing dispute.
According to reports, police requested backup and after roughly 20 minutes, the crowd began to disperse. Shortly after, however, police responded to two subsequent fights at 400 Harrison St. followed by another at 300 Jackson St. While calming the fights, the police vehicle was allegedly stolen from the 300 Marshall Dr. area. No arrests were made at the fights due to the police being outnumbered and an alleged unwillingness of those involved to sign complaints.
Reports said that the vehicle later was found abandoned after allegedly striking a cab driver in the area of 18th St. and Jersey Avenue in Jersey City. The taxi driver was transported to Jersey City Medical Center for treatment. No arrests have been made. -Stephen LaMarca
