The Essex County sheriff's office now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in a deadly parking lot beating in New Jersey.

Robert Sabio, a 70-year-old from Roselle Park, was attacked in Irvington nearly two weeks ago.

Police say it happened after Sabio bumped his car into another vehicle.

Sabio dropped off a friend and was pulling out of a parking space just in front of Casey's Tavern when he apparently bumped the car behind him.

There was little or no damage, but a dispute erupted and Sabio was badly beaten. He was rushed to the hospital, where he died two days later.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
