Newark Public Safety Director Fritz G. Fragé is reaching out to the public for help in finding Yvonne Barnes, aged 63. Fragé wants to question her regarding a carjacking incident that took place on December 10, 2023.
Around 10:30 PM, a Lyft driver picked up two male passengers on the 40 block of Eckert Avenue. As they were driving to the 200 block of 18th Avenue, a disagreement broke out between the driver and passengers regarding the volume of the music. When they reached the 600 block of Bergen Street, near Clinton Avenue, the driver asked the passengers to get out of the vehicle, which was registered with New Jersey plate Z99MWW.
