Two Norwalk men charged in gunpoint robbery
NORWALK — Two Norwalk men are accused of luring another party into a perceived “legal” transaction then robbing them at gunpoint, police said.
The robbery occurred around 2:40 p.m. Thursday, June 7, in the area of Pulaski Street after the transaction went awry.
The victim told police he was attempting to buy an undisclosed item from Joshua Kraemer, 18, and a juvenile, whom police have not identified, when they pulled a gun and robbed him of his personal items.
Police said the victim suffered minor injuries in the robbery. He was transported to the hospital and released shortly thereafter. There were no shots fired in the incident, police said.
One of the suspects was arrested shortly after the incident was alleged to occur. A few hours later police tracked down and arrested the second suspect.
Kraemer, of Main Street, Norwalk, and the juvenile were both charged with first-degree robbery, sixth-degree larceny, second-degree threatening and third-degree assault. They were held on $250,000 bonds, and both were given court dates of June 15.
The juvenile, whose age was not released by police, was transported to the Juvenile Detention Center in Bridgeport to be held.
