Man Accused of Taking Part in Robbery and Assault

A South Windsor man has been arrested, accused of taking part in a robbery and assault. 

The victim contacted police on Jan. 22 and said he’d met two men at a Manchester bar and they eventually drove to Vibert Road, where one of the men took his handgun, cell phone, wallet and jacket, assaulted him and left. 

Detectives reviewed video and eventually identified 26-year-old Austin Harris, of South Windsor, and another man as the suspects and arrest warrants were obtained for both men, police said. 

Harris was arrested on Thursday and he was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery in the third degree, conspiracy to commit assault in the third degree, conspiracy to commit kidnapping in the second degree and conspiracy to commit theft of a firearm. 

He was later released on a $250,000 surety bond and is scheduled to appear at Manchester Superior Court on Aug. 3.
