(Bridgeport, CT – March 27, 2014) – Three juveniles were arrested in connection with an attempted carjacking Wednesday on Coleman Street.
Officer Ernest Garcia spoke with the victim, who stated that he was sitting in his vehicle shortly before 2 p.m. when he observed four males walk past his car. A moment later, one of them opened his car door and pulled him out. A second youth with a gun stated they were taking the car and took his keys. The youths, however, fled without taking the car.
The victim provided descriptions and a short time later Lt. Bill Mayer report seeing four youths matching that description on Lexington Avenue. Mayer detained one but the other three fled. Two others were detained by K-9 Officer Mark Martocchio. The fourth suspect was not apprehended.
The victim identified the three teens as involved in the attempted robbery. The youths, all 15, were charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery.
