NORWALK, Conn. – A Norwalk man was arrested Tuesday in connection with a robbery Aug. 21 of an iPhone 5, according to police reports.
A man went to Norwalk Police headquarters Aug. 21 to report that his iPhone 5 had been stolen from his hand at Washington Village earlier that evening, police said. The man was outside a Water Street home when the suspect slapped his hand, causing him to drop the phone, police said.
The victim chased the suspect before the suspect joined a group of other young men, according to the police report. The suspect then reportedly said, “What are you going to do, you’re being robbed,” police said.
The phone’s owner picked Tyreace Victor, 20, of Pleasant Street as the suspect out of a photo lineup, according to police reports. Victor was arrested by Norwalk Police on Tuesday and charged with third-degree robbery and fifth-degree larceny. He was released after posting $500 bond and is due in court on Sept. 6.
