NEWARK — Police have asked for the public’s help after a woman was kidnapped from a residential street and robbed of several thousand dollars in a forced bank withdrawal.

On July 3 around 4 p.m., the woman was on the 100 block of Adams Street, according to Newark Public Safety Director Fritz Fragé.

Two men grabbed the victim by the arm and made her get into a blue Toyota Sienna, where they threatened her while demanding money.

The Sienna drove to a Santander Bank branch on Ferry Street, and the woman withdrew $9,000 from her bank account while one of the men waited outside to take her back to the vehicle, police said.

Everything is costing more these days — and housing is certainly no exception in New Jersey.

Data for 2023 from January through May, compiled by New Jersey Realtors, shows that homes hit the market and sell in two months or less, on average.

Median prices for single-family homes have reached $500,000 and above in nine counties.

Most counties have seen houses go for more than the list price this year, while the rest have been very close to asking — on average.
