STAMFORD, Conn. — Three suspects were arrested Saturday and accused of beating and robbing two Stamford women, Sgt. Rob Barbagallo said.
The victims told police that they were leaving a Bedford Street bar and were followed by the suspects who taunted them, Barbagallo said. At one point the suspects grabbed one of the victims, 24, by the hair pulling her to the ground, punching and kicking her several times, and stealing her purse, the sergeant said.
The victim declined medical treatment, but police did take photos of her injuries as evidence, he said.
The suspects were found a short time after midnight walking on Summer Street, Barbagallo said. One suspect, Shanice Danvers, 18, of the Bronx, N.Y., dropped a purse she was trying to hide and had the license of one of the victims, the sergeant said. She also admitted to hiding stolen money in her bra, he said.
Danvers was charged with second-degree robbery, sixth-degree larceny, and two counts of risk of injury to a child, police said. She was held on a $150,000 bond, police said.
The other two suspects are juveniles, one 15, from the Bronx, N.Y, and one, 14, of Stamford, and were charged with second-degree robbery and sixth-degree larceny, Barbagallo said. He was unsure if they had been released or held in custody.
