On September 8, 2020 at approximately 7:00p.m. Hamden Police responded to the Hamden Plaza, 2100 Dixwell Avenue on the report of an armed street robbery.
Investigation revealed that “3 or 4 teenaged males” approached a female, as she attempted to enter her motor vehicle. One of the males, described as “young” and “thin”, pointed a firearm at her, while demanding the keys to her vehicle. Another male then “pepper-sprayed” her in the eyes. She temporarily lost her vision. The males then stole her vehicle, described as a tan, 2013 BMW 328i. The victim’s wallet, which contained credit cards, was also stolen.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Donald Remillard of the Hamden Police Department Detective Division at (203) 230-4052.
