Jeremy Middleton, 18, of 28 Perry St., Stamford is facing four first-degree robbery related charges, second degree assault and second-degree larceny in connection with the Jan. 9 robbery on Rolling Lane and the Jan. 14 shooting and wounding of a separate Chinese delivery driver. 

Middleton was already being held in custody on other charges including arson charges laid by Stamford Police on Tuesday. The Stamford charges involve the burning of a vehicle stolen from a delivery driver in Bridgeport, police said.

The arrest came two days after Norwalk Police charged Onaje Smith, 18, of 32 Beechwood Ave., Bridgeport with being the shooter in the Jan. 14 wounding of the delivery driver. He's facing four robbery-related charges, and one count each of criminal use of a firearm, carrying a gun without a permit, first-degree assault and second-degree larceny. 

Last week, Norwalk Police arrested two Stamford residents in connection with the robberies.

Tyriek Gantt, 19, of 142 Connecticut Ave., was charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of first-degree conspiracy to commit robbery, first-degree assault and second-degree larceny.

Gantt was arrested following a Bridgeport car chase. He is also facing charges in Stamford, where police say he set a stolen car on fire. He is a co-accused with Middleton in the arson case.

Jaiden Parker, 20, of 145 Montauk Drive, was charged with two counts of first-degree robbery and one count of second-degree larceny in connection with the Jan. 9 robbery.
