STAMFORD, Conn. -- A 20-year-old Stamford was arrested Wednesday, Dec. 9, on charges related to a mugging that occurred near  William Street in August that sent the victim to the hospital, police said.   

On Aug 2, a man walking in the area of William Street was approached by three black males, police said. The men surrounded the victim and demanded his wallet, police said. When the victim objected, the suspects punched and kicked him and hit him on his forehead with a bottle, police said. 

The suspects then took his wallet, containing $140 and ran off, police said. The victim called 911 and was transported to Stamford Hospital, where he was treated for a severe cut above his left eye that took seven sutures to close, police said. 

Two days later, the victim was driving by the scene of the robbery and saw one of the men who robbed and beat him, police said. Stamford detectives followed up, and identified that man as Caleb Newell, 20, who lives near the attack scene, police said.

The victim picked out Newell in a photo lineup, police said. Officers arrested Newell at his home and charged him with first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery. He was held on $500,000 bond and will be arraigned Dec. 10 in Stamford court, police said.
