NORWALK, Conn. – Three people – two from Norwalk and one from Bridgeport – were arrested on robbery charges over the weekend in connection with a strong-arm robbery Feb. 18 on South Main Street, Norwalk police said.
A 48-year-old Norwalk man who was attacked suffered injuries in the 8 p.m. robbery, police said. He was treated and released from Norwalk Hospital.
The victim had just left a convenience store on South Main Street when he was jumped and beaten up by a man who goes by the street name “Mel” and his two accomplices, police said. They took two credit cards from the victim’s wallet and ran off, police said.
The victim and a witness heard the name Mel used during the attack, and detectives discovered his identity, police said. The victim then picked Mel and his accomplices out of a photo lineup and warrants were obtained, police said.
Mel turned out to be Milton Hudson, 53, of Kossuth Street, Norwalk, who was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree robbery, both felonies, and conspiracy.
Also charged were Lucinda Karma, 35, of Soundview Avenue, Bridgeport, and Juan Jimenez, 37, of Taylor Avenue, Norwalk. Karma received the same charges as Hudson, while Jimenez received the same robbery and conspiracy charges.
Hudson was held on $100,000 bond, Karma on $75,000 bond and Jimenez on $50,000 bond. All three were scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday.
