    Police arrested one of two masked men suspected of attacking a restaurant manager making a bank deposit and robbing him in North Haven two months ago.

    Officers found an empty moneybag and "Halloween type" masks and used DNA to identify one of the suspects as Allan Davis, 24. Police obtained an arrest warrant and Allan turned himself in on Monday.

    The arrest comes a couple months after two masked men demanded money from a Washington Avenue restaurant night manager "making an after-hours bank deposit" on June 3, according to police. The men punched the victim numerous times and then took his bag of money and ran from the scene.

    Police have not said whether they're still looking for a second suspect or whether further arrests are anticipated.

    Davis was charged with second-degree robbery and third-degree larceny. He posted a $5,000 bond and was released and is scheduled to be arrained in Meriden Superior Court on Aug. 21.
