PATERSON, N.J. - An image of a pickup truck, taken after a hit-and-run accident in Paterson, resulted in the arrest of a Randolph man after police were contacted by someone who saw the photo, authorities said Friday.

The man, Robert Sciubba, 46, was charged with third-degree knowingly leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident resulting in serious bodily injury, said Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes. The charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

Sciubba is accused of running into a 29-year-old woman and leaving the scene on Sept. 27. The incident took place near Madison Avenue and 16th Avenue, Valdes said. They said the woman was hospitalized with serious injuries but has been released and is recovering.

Paterson police subsequently released a photo of a blue Ford F-150 pickup, identifying it as the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run. "An anonymous call was made to the TIPS line, providing the information which led to the arrest of Sciubba," Valdes said, noting the "investigation remains active."

Sciubba's bail was set at $35,000. He is being held pending arraignment in state Superior Court, said the prosecutor.

Police are asking anybody with more information to contact them at 973-321-1120.

TAPinto Paterson Reader Shares Concerns About Absentee Ballots

April 21, 2018

Dear editor:

I am writing this letter to express a grave concern I have regarding the influx of absentee ballots. To my understanding, absentee ballots were designed to be used by those who are unable to make it to the polls on Election Day. Such as people in the armed services or those who are away on vacation. 

This year’s municipal election will be one for the history books.
