Police have arrested two teens accused of robbing and attacking a 45-year-old man in Ansonia.
According to police, a group of young men confronted the victim at Liberty Park on Fourth Street around 8:30 p.m. May 9 and demanded his money. He refused, so they assaulted him, causing cuts and other wounds to his face and puncture wounds to his chest and arms. The robbers got away with the man’s money and cellphone.
Police said the victim was taken to Griffin Hospital for treatment of his injuries, which are not life threatening. He was able to identify two of his assailants: a 17-year-old and 14-year-old boy, both of whom were taken into custody.
The teens, Ansonia residents, were each charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree larceny and first-degree assault. They’re due in Waterbury Juvenile Court on May 22.
