Police said the suspects also fired a gun twice during the incident.


Authorities are searching for two suspects from an incident Sunday evening in which one of the suspects allegedly attempted to rob a victim at knife and gun point, Stamford Police Lieutenant Diedrich Hohn announced Monday morning.

Hohn said a 29-year-old man was walking along the first block of Diaz Street when he was approached by a Hispanic male on a bike and a black male on foot. The victim was reportedly told not to move, and shown a silver revolver and a knife, both of which were being held by the man on the bicycle, Hohn said. 

The victim grabbed the suspects arms in an attempt to protect himself, which caused the suspect to fire at him twice, according to Hohn. The victim wasn't shot in the incident, but reportedly received a puncture wound to his hand form the knife during the struggle.

The victim was taken to Stamford Hospital, treated and released after receiving stitches.

Hohn said the Hispanic suspect was described as being roughly 6-feet tall, thin build in his mid-20s wearing a black jacket, hat and face mask.The black male, who was reportedly passive during the altercation, was described as heavyset, in his mid-20s wearing a black jacket, according to Hohn.
