The teenagers have been arrested in connection with the broad-daylight assault of a 60-year-old man at a park in the area late last month.

The victim, a 60-year-old, was attacked by three assailants as he was walking through Twin Brooks Park in Trumbull on Nov. 24.

The victim reported that as he was walking along the sidewalk on Twin Brooks Drive toward the wooded area of the park at about 2 p.m. that Saturday afternoon, when an older, gray-colored car with a large rear spoiler drove past him.

A short time later, the vehicle drove back towards him and stopped. A Hispanic male, about 18 to 22 years old, got out of the car and approached the victim, Trumbull Police said.

Without saying a word, the male punched the victim in the head, knocking him to the ground, according to police.

Two other young males exited the vehicle and began kicking the victim as he lay on the ground, all the while demanding money.

The victim told them he did not have money with him and they pushed him into the road before they drove off towards Franklin Street.

The victim was able to get a partial license plate for the car as it drove off. Police have not disclosed the partial plate at this time.
