Police say a woman in Newark was carjacked earlier this morning with her 11-month-old child still in the car. According to Newark Police, the woman was driving a 2006 Dodge Durango when she made the decision to exit the vehicle to care for her infant child in the backseat. During that time, the suspect entered her car and carjacked the vehicle with the child still inside.
