Police have made an arrest in connection with a teen who was robbed after he made a date to meet with a prostitute.

The 19-year-old New Haven teen told Hamden Police police that on Oct. 5, 2018, he was scheduled to meet with a “prostitute” on State Street, but when he arrived he was approached by two men who told him they had a gun and began going through his pockets. They stole $140, said Hamden Police Capt. Ronald Smith.

After the robbery, the two men forced the teen into the backseat of his car. One of the subjects drove, while the other sat with the victim in the backseat, Smith said.

The men then drove the teen to several ATMs located throughout the area and stole an additional $600 from his account. The victim was then driven to a residence in New Haven, where he was released and his vehicle was returned, Smith said.

Detective John Marks conducted an extensive investigation, which led to the arrest of Daiquan Hyman, one of the men involved.

On Friday, Jan. 18, Hamden Police arrested Hyman, 19, of Hamden at Meriden Superior Court. He was charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, kidnapping with a firearm, conspiracy to commit kidnapping with a firearm, larceny, and conspiracy to commit larceny.

 Hyman, who was detained on a court-ordered $250,000.00 bond, is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Feb. 1.
