A Parsippany man attempting to carjack a woman's vehicle at a Mt. Olive gas station was scared off Saturday morning when she began yelling for help, police said.
Andrew Sichko, 36, was charged with robbery, attempted robbery, attempted carjacking, possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a syringe and tampering with evidence.
According to a police report, a woman
stopped at a Delta Gas Station on Route 46 in Mt. Olive when
Sichko got into her car on the passenger side at about 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
Sichko threatened and grabbed the woman, “telling her to drive or he would kill her,” according to the Mt. Olive police report.
The woman told officers Sichko said he had a knife and "would use it if she
did not do what he said,” the report stated. But when she began to yell for help, Sichko jumped out of the vehicle and ran behind a nearby hotel, police said.
The woman provided responding officers a description of the carjacker and Sichko's "personal belongings" were found inside the woman's car that led to his identification, police said.
Officers then found Sichko and he was "positively identified" as the carjacker, police said.
was arrested and is being held at the Morris County Correctional Facility in lieu of $75,000 with a 10 percent option pending a court appearance.
