West Orange police are asking for the public's help to identify the five men who allegedly beat and robbed a New York man at gunpoint in early May.
West Orange police released images Monday of the men they believe were involved in the robbery that occured at the corner of Ridge and Watson avenues at about 9:55 p.m. on May 4.
The five men surrounded the New York man and one, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, pulled a gun and demanded the New York man's money, township spokeswoman Jessica Glicker said.
The armed man pistol-whipped the New York man while the other four men beat and robbed him, police said. The robbers took $300 in cash, his wallet and cell phone, valued at $200, according to the police report.
