NEWARK - A young boy is back with his family after police say the father was carjacked right outside their home in Newark with the boy inside.

Investigators say that Jose Neto was leaving his home with his 2-year-old son, Collen, in the car when a man with a gun hit Jose on the head with the gun and stole the car with his son inside.

Jose ran inside and called police who located Collen one street away, unharmed.

The car was located in Lincoln Park because Jose had an automatic starter that shut off when the car was out of range from the key fob.

The armed suspect was not apprehended.
