Cops: NYC Man Carjacks Vehicle in Trenton, Pinning Victim, Chase ends in Fairless Hills
New Jersey Police say a New York City man carjacked a woman, by pinning her down leading law enforcement in a chase ending in Bucks County, Thrusday.
Tomasz Dymek, 31, of Astoria, Queens, was being held in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, while extradition and charges were pending, according to police. The bizarre incident began at a CVS pharmacy parking lot on Olden Avenue in Ewing, authorities say.
According to Fox 29 the incident began in the parking lot of a CVS on the 1600 Block of Olden Avenue in Trenton.
N.J authorities say Dymek approached two woman in the parking lot of the pharmacy outlet asking for money. Dymek angered by the offering of $1 dollar by one of the woman, forced his way into her vehicle and “… sitting on top of her in the driver’s seat,” said Ewing Police in a news release speeding off.
Witnesses called police and a detective spotted the vehicle on a Trenton Street before it took off leading a chase onto Route 1 into Bucks County, the release said.
The car jacked vehicle eventually became disabled in the area of Lincoln Highway and Tyburn Road in Fairless Hills, where police quickly snatched Dymek as he tried to flee the scene, authorities said.
The victim, a 66-year-old woman from Trenton, remained pinned under Dymek during the entire ordeal and was unable to access the vehicle’s brake,” Ewing police said. She was taken to a local medical facility for evaluation and released, said police.
Criminal charges are pending as Dymek awaits extradition from Bucks County Correctional.
Ewing authorities said they continue to investigate the incident and encourage anyone with information to contact Andrew Condrat at 609-822-1313 ext. 7583.
