Six teens from Connecticut, ranging in age from 16 to 18, have been charged with mugging a Port Chester woman as she was walking home from work on Boston Post Road, according to Port Chester Police.
The woman's phone and debit card were found in possession of two of the teens, police said, and another teen had 14 bags of marijuana on him when he and the others were arrested shortly after the 6:30 p.m. attack on Saturday.
Lt. James Ladeairous said the victim, a 49-year-old village resident, left work about 6 p.m. and as she walked along Boston Post Road she saw a group of young men on the other side of the street. As the victim approached Slater Street, she told police she could hear people coming up from behind her.
As she got to Slater Street, Ladeairous said an attacker said "Mom, give me your pocketbook." Ladeairous said the victim was then grabbed by another attacker who said "What do you have in your pockets?" and ripped a pocket off her coat to take a cell phone.
The attackers ran off. The victim was not injured in the attack.
Ladeairous said village police officers spotted a group of six young men nearby who matched the description of those involved with the attack. The victim, Ladeairous said, identified them as the attackers.
- Angel Luis Rodriguez, 17, West Main St., Stamford, CT.
- Jaime Gonzalez, 17, 7 Piave St., Stamford, CT.
- Felix Trujillo, 16, 321 Clinton Ave., Bridgeprot, CT.
- David Cardova, 18, 68 Victory Boulevard, Stamford, CT.
- Jesus Alvarado, 17, 14 West St., Stamford, CT.
- Augustine Zoletto, 16, 37 Little Hill Drive, Stamford, CT.
All six were charged with second-degree robbery. Trujillo was also charged with illegal possession of marijuana in connection with 14 bags of marijuana he was found with, police said.
Cardova was also charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property in connection with the stolen cell phone, and Zoletto was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property in connection with the stolen debit card.
Zoletto was being held pending the posting of bail. Cardova was released on $2,000 bail and Rodriguez, Gonzalez, Trujillo and Alverado were released on $1,000 bail. They all face a hearing in Port Chester Village Court.
