Minor Taken Into Custody for Carjacking Food Delivery Worker in Wallingford

Wallingford Police

A minor was arrested in connection to a 2022 carjacking that left a food delivery person injured in Wallingford.

Police said the delivery person was dragged as two people stole his vehicle.

Police officers responded to Chimney Hill Road just after 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 9, 2022, to investigate a report of a suspicious vehicle and found an older black Honda Accord with dark tinted windows and a white trash bag covering its registration plate.

Officers tried to stop the Honda, but the driver sped off, police said.

Soon after, officers responded back to the area Chimney Hill Road and Sullivan Avenue to investigate a carjacking.

The victim has cuts on his head, knee and foot and medical staff treated him at the scene.

Police learned the victim was delivering food in the area when two males confronted him. They tried to take his Nissan Rouge and the victim was dragged around 500 feet, police said.

One of the carjackers had something in his hand, police said, but the victim was so distraught that he could not tell what it was.

Police found the Nissan Rogue a short time later in Meriden.

The minor was issued a juvenile summons and faces charges including robbery involving an occupied motor vehicle, reckless endangerment, and larceny. They're expected to appear in court on May 17.

Wallingford police urge the public to report suspicious activity if you see it. They urged people who work in delivery service to be cautious and skip a fare or delivery when you notice something suspicious rather than take a risk.
