YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A 54-year-old auto dealer shop foreman from River Vale sustained minor injuries after he jumped onto and fell off the hood of a 2015 Audi carjacked outside a Hackensack store early this morning, police said.

The victim told police he’d gone to meet his daughter when he was approached just after 6 a.m. in the Essex Street parking lot of the Lakeshore Learning Store by a man who “knocked him to the ground and got behind the wheel,” Police Capt. Timothy Lloyd told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

The victim said he jumped onto the hood of the white Q3 and was knocked off as the carjacker, whom he described as a “black male, approximately 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds wearing a black hoodie,” sped off east on Essex Street, the captain said.

Police suspect a black BMW that followed was driven by an accomplice.

Lloyd asked that anyone with information that could help the investigation call Hackensack PD: (201) 646-7777

Likely charges include carjacking, aggravated assault and robbery — all first-degree because of the injury — as well as fleeing, among other counts.
