November 30, 2018

STAMFORD — A 21-year-old and a juvenile were recently charged in connection with a robbery earlier this month, police said Thursday.

Deandre Parsons, 21, of Stamford, and an unidentified juvenile were each charged with first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery.

Parsons is currently on parole and remains in custody, according to a news release from Stamford Police Lt. Thomas Scanlon.

Shortly before 6 p.m. on Nov. 14, Stamford police officers responded to the 100 block of Ludlow Street for a report of a street robbery.

The victim, a 31-year-old Stamford resident, said he was beaten by two suspects and hit on the head with a hard object, Scanlon said. The victim told police the suspects took what he had in his wallet and his cellphone before taking off in different directions.

“The victim chased one suspect and a fight later ensued where the suspect displayed a firearm,” Scanlon said.

The victim, who was assaulted but not shot, was treated at Stamford Hospital for minor injuries.

The suspects were not found by police on the night of Nov. 14, Scanlon said.

Stamford Police Major Crimes continued to investigate the incident and identified the two suspects as Parsons and the juvenile.

On Nov. 21, Stamford police served search warrants at the residences of each suspect. The juvenile was arrested that day. Parsons was taken into custody on Nov. 28.
