Hackensack man guilty of Paterson carjacking


A Passaic County jury has convicted a Hackensack man for carjacking in Paterson, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Paul Myhand, 40-year-old, was found guilty of two counts of first-degree carjacking. He faces life in prison. A jury returned the verdict on Friday following an hour of deliberation.

Myhand entered an occupied car as the driver was parking it near the corner of Main Street and Broadway on July 24, 2016.

“Give me the car!” Myhand ordered the driver and the passenger. He also assaulted both the driver and his passenger, according to evidence prosecutors presented to the court.

Myhand took control the car and sped away from the scene. He sideswiped two other vehicles, authorities said.

Both victims suffered minor injuries. Paterson police officers quickly responded to the incident.

Myhand was arrested 36 minutes later. Police caught him driving the stolen car about twelve blocks from the scene of the crime.

The judge remanded Myhand to the Passaic County Jail pending sentencing. His $200,000 bail was revoked following trial.

    He looks familiar.And let anyone try to carjack any of my family members,especially with kids inside, while I am in the car. They will know what happens when you mess with a mother bear.

        That's why ALL law abiding residents must be armed. There's a reason for our constitutional right to carry a gun.

    What you need to get through your head is that what he did was a very very brazen act. He can't do that and hope to be out here in society. Clearly, he deserved what he is going to get. He is lucky we don't have death penalty. Let him take comfort we aren't calling for his execution for this brazen, brazen act.

      Brazen act? Stealing without injury and gets life? I never defend a criminal but this curse the cake. I could understand a only a racist who would agree with you.

        Man, quit your moaning. Visit your boy in jail comfort him, giving him fellatio and a Biden rub if you so concerned. While you at it tell him next time to look up the crime before doing it. Everyone knows carjacking carries hefty penalties for good reasons.
