State police have arrested a man and a woman in connection with the shooting and stabbing of a man during a drug theft at Briarwood Apartments in Windham on Oct. 16.
State troopers found the 33-year-old victim in the stairwell of the apartments on Bricktop Road when they responded to reports of an altercation that evening.
The victim told investigators that 20-year-old Alexander Santana, of Montville, contacted him and asked to come over and buy $40 worth of cocaine. After using cocaine, Santana started sending messages on his phone, the victim told police.
At one point, the victim got up to go to the kitchen and found Santana with another person when he returned to the living room. Both people had guns and demanded drugs and money, the arrest warrant application says.
Santana grabbed the victim’s backpack, which held cocaine and cash, and shot the victim in the chest and the other person stabbed him in the abdomen, according to an arrest warrant application.
The victim was initially transported to Windham Hospital, then flown to Hartford Hospital.
State police have now identified 18-year-old Corianna Jenkins, of Plymouth, as one of the suspects.
Plymouth police who were investigating an unrelated incident located her, learned that there was a warrant for her, took her into custody and turned her over to state police.
Jenkins has been charged with illegal possession of a narcotic, larceny in the sixth degree, robbery in the first degree, tampering with physical evidence, breach of peace in the second degree, attempted murder, assault in the first degree and second-degree threatening. Her bond was set at $1 million.
Santana has been charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, larceny in the sixth degree, robbery in the first degree, breach of peace in the second degree, criminal use of a weapon, attempted murder, assault in the first degree and threatening in the second degree.
Bond was set at $250,000.
