Police have arrested a teen accused of taking part in the beating of a 15-year-old after he got off the school bus in Hamden last month and stealing the sneakers right off his feet.
Jaywon Lacy, 18, of Hamden, was taken into custody on Thursday night while riding a bicycle on Dixwell Avenue, police said.
He is accused of taking part in a beating at Burke and George streets that the victim told investigators “seemed like forever.”
The victim was attacked by at least four teens, police said. They punched and kicked him until he fell to the ground, then stole his book bag and took the sneakers he was wearing, police said.
Lacy was charged with robbery in the second degree, assault in the second degree, larceny in the sixth degree and conspiracy.
He is scheduled to appear in court in Meriden on July 10.
