Police were unable to locate a suspect who reportedly stole a wallet from a Hartford man walking along Farmington Avenue to a West Hartford package store Sunday morning.
Police said the victim reported that he was walking from Hartford to a package store, and was on the 800 block of Farmington Avenue in West Hartford when the mugging occurred. According to police, the victim was placing his wallet in his back pocket when it was stolen by an unknown man.
The suspect was described as a white male with a beard, approximately 5-foot-9 inches tall, dressed in a black “Insane Clown Posse” t-shirt and sweatpants.
According to police, the victim chased the suspect but was unable to catch him to retrieve the wallet.
The victim then walked back to Hartford, police said and reported the incident to Hartford Police but was told it was a West Hartford Police matter. The incident was reported at 11:38 a.m., but police said that they were told it had happened about an hour earlier, with a delay in reporting due to the victim first walking back to Hartford.
Police were not able to find a suspect matching the description provided by the victim.
Police said in an incident report that the “complainant’s explanation for their trip to the package store and their behavior just prior to the mugging made little sense to responding officers.”
