On November 26, 2010, at about 9:14 p.m., Patrolman Kevin Florczak responded to 139 East Westfield Avenue (Delta Gas Station) on a report of an armed robbery.
Kenilworth police received a 911 call from a person who was reporting the robbery in progress.
Upon arrival, Patrolman Florczak spoke to the victim who stated that while he was on the phone with a friend he observed a male walking eastbound on East Westfield Avenue from the direction of Walnut Street. The male was described as a black male about 5’8” thin build, short hair wearing black jeans, black jacket, black gloves, black doo-rag and black bandanna covering his face. As the male approached the booth he pointed a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded money. The victim turned over approximately $120.00 and the suspect then ran westbound on East Westfield Avenue towards Walnut Street then turned right and ran northbound on Walnut Street in Roselle Park.
The caller who was on the phone with the victim at the time of the robbery, heard the suspect demand money from him. In response, he hung up the phone and dialed 911 which was routed to Kenilworth police.
Kenilworth police in response contacted Roselle Park police headquarters.
A check of the area revealed negative results for the suspect. Additional police units from Kean University and Union County Sheriff’s Department canvassed the area with negative results.
