NEWARK — Thieves stole a brand-new Range Rover Friday night in front of an arrivals area at Newark Liberty International Airport, authorities said.

A 62-year-old woman was driving in front of the arrivals section of Terminal B at the airport around 10 p.m., said Joe Pentangelo, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Her silver, 2014 Range Rover was bumped in the back-right corner by a white GMC Suburban. The woman pulled over to the side of the roadway to examine the damage and talk with the other driver, Pentangelo said.

But a man rushed into the Range Rover’s driver’s side, and sped off in an unknown direction, with the Suburban following, Pentangelo added.

The thief is believed to have gotten out of the passenger side of the Suburban before dashing into the Range Rover, Pentangelo said.
