A man was robbed at gunpoint, then beaten and pistol-whipped in Bridgeport and police said his coworker is the suspect.
A 22-year-old Stratford man told police that a man who he works with in Westport, known as “Javon,” agreed to sell him auto parts for $800, but then robbed him when they met up shortly after midnight on Sunday, police said.
The victim told police that he called Javon late on Saturday, arranged to meet in Bridgeport to buy the auto parts and brought $800.
When they met up, Javon pulled out a gun and ordered the victim out of his car, police said.
When the victim refused, another man pulled the victim out of the vehicle, where he was beaten and pistol whipped, police said.
Police arrested Javon Oden, 21, of Bridgeport, at the Westport store and are looking for the other man.
Oden was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery.
Bond was set at $75,000.
