On May 17, 2021 at approximately 3:45p.m. Hamden Police responded to the Hamden Plaza, 2100 Dixwell Avenue on the report of a street robbery.
Investigation revealed that an 85-year-old female was placing groceries into her motor vehicle. She was approached from behind by an individual, described as a “dark-skinned male wearing a full face covering.” The male grabbed the shoulder strap of the victim’s pocketbook. She was “violently pulled to the ground.” The impact caused her to fracture her shoulder. The male fled in a blue Honda CRV, which was stolen earlier in West Haven.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Joseph Liguori of the Hamden Police Department Detective Division at (203) 407-3190.
