Three men were arrested in Bridgeport on Sunday after allegedly trying to rob three other people near Federal Street and Madison Avenue.
Bridgeport police arrested Kevin Cabrera, 21, of 800 Hallett Street, and Jesus Javier, 21, of 1072 East Main Street and a 17-year-old in connection with an attempted robbery during which one victim was hit in the head with a rock.
Police responded to the area following the report of a street fight. There they found two of the victims, who told police they were walking down the street when a group of young men on bicycles road past, then turned around and confronted them. The victims said a second group approached them from behind, and they couldn’t get away.
Passing cars started honking at the group and the suspects fled, according to police.
Police said they found the suspects riding their bikes on Center Street and arrested them. A victim was able to positively identify one of the suspects, according to police.
Cabrera and Javier were charged with criminal attempt at first-degree robbery, second-degree assault, breach of peace and interfering with police. They were each held on a $50,000 bond.
The 17-year-old was issued a summons and was held on an outstanding warrant with the New York Police Department.
