Delaware State Police have identified 54-year-old Nadeem Cassiem of Keasbey, New Jersey, as the suspect involved in stealing a vehicle yesterday morning on I-95 in Newark.

On February 7, 2024, at approximately 7:09 a.m., troopers responded to I-95 southbound, in the area of State Route 273, for a report of a collision. Prior to arriving, troopers were notified that one of the drivers involved in the collision had stolen a Good Samaritan’s car and fled southbound on I-95. During the investigation, troopers learned a white RAM pickup truck was traveling in the right southbound lane of I-95 when it was rear-ended by a red Toyota Rav4. A concerned passerby stopped to check on the drivers for injuries, at which point the driver of the Toyota got into the Good Samaritan’s Mercury Mountaineer and fled southbound on I-95 in the stolen SUV.

Through investigative means, troopers identified Nadeem Cassiem as the driver of the Toyota and the suspect that stole the Mercury. Shortly after fleeing, Cassiem and the stolen Mercury were located in Maryland by Perryville Police Department. Cassiem was taken into custody by Perryville Police Department without incident. Upon extradition to Delaware, Cassiem will be charged with one felony count of Theft of a Motor Vehicle, and multiple traffic violations.
