LINDEN - Police are looking for three men who carjacked a couple at gunpoint in Linden last night.

It happened at around midnight after the victims checked into the Swan Motel on Edgar Road.

One of the victims, an Elizabeth man, told police that a black car with tinted windows, possibly a BMW, approached him as he and his friend got out of their Cadillac Escalade. The victim says three men with guns ordered the couple to place all their personal items inside the car, including cash and cellphones.

One of the suspects then drove the victim's Cadillac out of the parking lot, followed by the suspects' vehicle. The couple was not hurt.

Officers later recovered the victim's vehicle after it appeared to have crashed near Newark Liberty Airport. The suspects had already fled the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Linden Police Detective Bureau at 908-474-8537.
