On November 15, 2020 at approximately 3:15p.m. Hamden Police responded to
Hubbard Place on the report of an armed street robbery.
Investigation revealed that the 20-year-old victim was walking towards his residence,
when he was approached by two males. One of the males pointed a firearm at him,
while demanding his personal items. The victim “pushed” the gunman. The second male
subsequently “pulled out a knife” and then punched the victim in the face several times,
knocking him to the ground. The two suspects then stole his backpack, headphones
and wallet, after rummaging through his pockets. They then fled from the area in a dark
colored motor vehicle.
Hamden Fire Rescue responded to the scene and rendered medical treatment to the
victim. The victim sustained injuries to his eye, lips and face.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hamden Police Department Detective
Division at (203) 230-4000.
