FAIRFIELD — Three people were arrested after they reportedly tried to steal alcohol Tuesday night.
Two teenagers and a juvenile were in custody after a loss-prevention guard at a grocery story on the 2400 block of Waterman Boulevard was reportedly assaulted during a scuffle, said Sgt. Franco Cesar.
Kye Campbell-Jones, 18, of Fairfield, was arrested at the scene of the incident after being detained by the guard. Vicente Sharp, 19, of Fairfield, and a juvenile were arrested around 9 p.m. after being pulled at gunpoint from a home on the 1800 block of Salisbury Drive. Several other young adults or juveniles were also pulled from the home, but were released, Cesar said.
All three are suspected of robbery, theft and conspiracy, Cesar said.
The incident occurred Tuesday after the trio entered the store. One of them turned to the security camera and flipped his middle finger as they entered, Cesar said.
The group was known to store employees from past incidents, Cesar said, and they were approached by security. A fight ensued and items were thrown at the guard and he was assaulted, Cesar said. That employee was later brought to the scene and reportedly identified the suspects, Cesar said.
Police were able to identify the remaining suspects and made contact with them at the Salisbury Drive residence. Police were originally told there was mention of a gun, which led to arrest at gunpoint with the help of a K-9, Cesar said.
