Original 11/26/18 Statement:


November 26, 2018 - This past Saturday, a 60-year-old resident of Trumbull was assaulted in the Twin Brooks Park area in what appears to have been an attempted robbery. The three suspects drove off in an older model grey car with a large rear spoiler. The assailants were described as young, between 18 and 22 years old, and may have been of Hispanic origin. The Trumbull resident was injured but will recover.

My heart goes out to the victim, his family, and his friends. Public safety is my number one priority and, while crimes like this are rare in our community, they will not be tolerated.

Our outstanding police force is following up on leads. They have contacted surrounding communities, are reviewing video that might show the vehicle, and are working on other avenues to identify the vehicle and the persons involved. We will not rest until the perpetrators of this reprehensible act are arrested. I am confident our police will find those responsible.

Anyone having any information should contact the Trumbull police directly at 203-261-3665 or via the anonymous and confidential tip line located on our website.

Trumbull is a safe community. If you ever see anything suspicious, please report it to the Trumbull police. Let’s all work together to keep Trumbull safe.
