WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Two men and one juvenile have been arrested after police say they robbed a man who was walking down the street.
It happened Monday night around 11:00 p.m. Police say the victim was walking on York Street by the Dutchess Diner when a dark colored Range Rover pulled alongside him. That’s when two men jumped out of the vehicle, both with handguns, and they took the victims cell phone and wallet. They then jumped back into the Range Rover and took off down York Street. The Range Rover was seen a short time later by West Haven Police Officers at a Valero Gas station. Officers followed the vehicle but lost sight of it right near the Orange line.
The Ranger Rover was later seen by New Haven Police. While the suspects tried to evade police, they wound up crashing into a New Haven cruiser. Everyone inside the Range Rover jumped out and took off running but were found a short time later.
West Haven Police Detectives reviewed video at the gas station and were able to lift a fingerprint from one of the suspects. The victims credit card was also used and the suspect produced ID to buy cigarettes. The print was matched to one of the suspects.
Police have charged 21-year-old Kenzell Goodman of Butler Street in New Haven and 20-year-old Brandon Walter of Winchester Avenue in New Haven with robbery, larceny and interfering with police.
Both are held on $100,000 bond.
The juvenile arrested can not be identified because they are underage.
