HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Two men were arrested following a robbery at a Hartford credit union on Wednesday, police said.
Hakeem Malik Robinson, 26, and Zaiqwan Fothergill, 20, both of Hartford, face charges of robbery in the first degree, threatening in the second degree, conspiracy to commit robbery in the first degree, carrying a pistol without a permit, and interfering with police.
Hartford police officers responded to Cencap Federal Credit Union for the report of a hold-up alarm around 8:35 a.m. Wednesday.
The first responding officer obtained the last travel direction used by the suspects, police said, and the credit union used a tracking device that showed the stolen money to be in the area of Keney Park.
As that officer entered Keney Park, police said he saw two men “standing next to a vehicle, peering into what appeared to be a bank bag.”
When the two suspects saw the officer, police said they ran into a wooded area of the park. Officers established a perimeter and took the suspects into custody.
No injuries were reported.
