Randell Clark

A Norwalk man and two juveniles were arrested following an armed robbery at Chipotle Grille, 340 Grasmere Ave., Sunday night.

Fairfield Police responded to the restaurant at 10:39 p.m., after an employee called 911 from the restaurants bathroom reporting unknown subjects had entered the restaurant after closing hours.

Officers arrived on scene to discover the business had just been robbed at gunpoint and multiple suspects fled out the back door of the restaurant. An officer responding to the robbery saw a vehicle flee the scene at a high rate of speed with its head lights turned off.

The officer attempted to stop the vehicle east bound on Commerce Drive and broke off the pursuit due to the driver’s reckless operation and high rate of speed. The suspect vehicle continued east bound into Bridgeport on State Street Extension and struck an unoccupied parked vehicle, resulting in the suspect vehicle rolling onto its roof and three suspects fleeing the crash on foot.

Two suspects were apprehended a short distance away by both Fairfield and Bridgeport officers who converged on the scene.

Two hand guns used in the robbery were recovered, along with cash taken from the restaurant.

During the search for the third suspect, Fairfield Police deployed its K9 and searched the State Street Extension area with the assistance of Bridgeport officers. The third suspect was discovered hiding in an unlocked residence on Dewey Street and taken into custody.

Randell Clark, 23, with a last known address of 261 Ely Ave., Norwalk, and the two juveniles were charged with first-degree robbery, first degree conspiracy to commit robbery and larceny.

Two of the suspects were being treated at area hospitals as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. None of the employees reported any injuries during the incident.
