Police have arrested two suspects in the brazen carjacking of a woman with three children in March in Secaucus.
First Ward Councilman Gary Jeffas said two men from Newark — Raheem Braxton and Terrell Melvin — were taken into custody on charges of carjacking, conspiracy to commit carjacking, possession of a firearm, robbery and child endangerment.
Secaucus police have not yet been reached about the arrests.
The arrests stem from the March 24 carjacking at gunpoint by a masked assailant in broad daylight as the victim was parking at the Pump It Up children’s party center on Penhorn Avenue.
Police said at the time the victim was with her three young children and turned over the keys to her white Mercedes vehicle to the suspect at gunpoint.
That incident followed another on March 14 that included a carjacking and pistol-whipping of the driver of a BMW on the Route 3 West exit near Maple Street in town.
A 21-year-old Bayonne man was arrested for that carjacking this month.
The men are being held on $500K cash bond.
