Bristol Police Investigate Two Robberies

Bristol police are investigating two robberies around the same time on Wednesday night.

Police responded to an armed robbery at Two Brothers Restaurant, located at 962 Pine St., around 9 p.m.

Two men with guns were wearing masks when they held up the pizza restaurant as the workers were preparing to close, police were told.

As the two men fled the scene, a witness noticed a car fleeing and wrote down the license plate number.

Using GPS technology, detectives were able to track down the suspects to a location on East View Street in Bristol, police said.

Cliffton Richardson 30, and Lewonda Jones, 39, were taken into custody and charged with the robbery and larceny. They were held on a $150,000 bond.

No injuries are reported.

Around the same time, a man wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue sweatpants and a Boston Red Sox baseball cap walked into the Subway Restaurant at 156 Farmington Ave. and demanded that the clerk open the cash register, police said.

When the two employees ran to the back of the store, the robber turned and walked out of the store without taking anything, police said.

He motioned with his hand as if he was pointing a gun at the employees, but did not show a weapon.

One Subway employee said a red pickup was seen leaving the parking lot moments after the robber left the store, but no registration plate was seen.

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to call the Bristol Police Criminal Investigation Division at 860-314-4561.
