    3 Arrested After Attacking, Robbing Dirt Bike Rider
    Bristol Police

    A 20-year-old man was hospitalized after his dirt bike broke down in Rockwell Park in Bristol just after midnight on Sunday and he was attacked and robbed by three males who are now facing charges.

    Trevon Clay, 22, of New Britain, and two boys under 18 are facing charges in connection to the incident.

    Bristol police responded to the area of Jacobs and Muzzy streets in Bristol at about 12:52 a.m. to investigate a robbery complaint.

    The victim told police that he was riding his dirt bike in the park when it had mechanical problems so he had to walk it home to Gridley Street. On the way home, three males, including two people under 18, approached him. One of the juveniles punched him in the face as the other two people stole his dirt bike and helmet, the victim told police.

    The group of three who attacked him fled the scene on foot in the western direction. Police found them near Tulip and Barnes streets and apprehended one of them. The other two were caught just beyond Barnes Street.

    Clay was charged with second-degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy to commit robbery, third-degree larceny and third-degree conspiracy to commit larceny. He is being held on a $10,000 bond until his court appearance Monday at Bristol Superior Court. The two juveniles are facing similar charges and were referred to juvenile court. They were released to their parents.

    The victim was transported to Bristol Hospital to be treated for a nose contusion and then released.

    Police recovered the dirt bike and helmet and returned them to the victim.
