NORWALK, Conn. – Police are investigating two, separate strong-arm robberies that occurred Sunday night in South Norwalk, and in both cases the victims were treated at Norwalk Hospital with minor injuries and released.

The first incident occurred near Soundview Avenue when a 49-year-old man who was walking alone was attacked by a group of men, police said. They took an undisclosed amount of cash from the man, and one of the assailants hit him in the head with a bat.

In the second theft, two males beat up a 42-year-old Norwalk man who was walking on Martin Luther King Drive near the South Norwalk Train Station. The assailants stole the man’s cell phone and wallet, which contained an undisclosed amount of cash.

2 more robberies since this article was written sounds like an epidemic.

Seems to me that people walking around SONO are taking a serious risk. The Chief spoke out of turn I think, nobody can keep a promise like that without some luck on their side. Random violence isnt easy to solve when its sucessful and unfortunately we are told not to fight back. When somebody does fight back the legal system drags them thru the mud instead of praising them for doing the right thing.

Making promises like that makes good television, but does not make much sense in the real world. I assume the chief meant well, but he is leading a dept that has just learned they can't trust the police commission to keep it's word when they give promotion exams. It will be interesting to see how many smart young officers apply for jobs in other depts with leadership that can be trusted.
On the plus side, they probably will get the shooter in this case. There are cops who don't give up, and the shooter in this case will do it again and eventually get caught, hopefully before he kills somebody.

The Norwalk crime epidemic continues..Just add this to he long long list of unsolved crimes by the NPD. Let us not forget the new chief promised they would catch the ones responsible for the shotting of the lady at Stop and Shop a few months back....STILL NO APPREHENSION AS USUAL...
