The beating and attempted robbery of a 60-year-old man in Twin Brooks Park Saturday has town officials with safety in the park, with both First Selectman Vicki Tesoro and the Trumbull Police Dept. commenting on the incident. The attack was the second high-profile crime at the park in the last 18 months. Last June a 69-year-old man was the victim of an attempted gunpoint carjacking.
According to reports, a 60-year-old Trumbull man was walking along the sidewalk toward the wooded area of the park about 2 p.m. when he was attacked by three unidentified assailants. The man said an older gray car with a large rear spoiler drove past him. A short time later the car drove back toward him and stopped, and a young male, possibly about 18-22 years old, approached him and, without saying a word, punched him on the head, knocking him to the ground. Two other males exited the vehicle and began kicking the victim and demanding money as he lay on the ground.
