Teen Faces Charge in Reported Robbery

Greenwich Police continue investigating reported robbery involving teens.


It all started out as a report of a Greenwich juvenile claiming he was robbed by a group of four young teens, one of whom was brandishing a handgun.

But as Greenwich Police continued their investigation into the incident report about 7 p.m. March 2, they found that at least one of the teens involved gave investigators a false written statement of what happened. And so far, one teen is facing a charge of second-degree false statement, according to a police report.

The investigation began with a Greenwich teen reporting he was confronted by a quartet of thugs in front of 72 Hamilton Ave., at the corner of Edgewood Avenue, according to the report. The suspect gave police a written statement that the incident was a chance encounter on the sidewalk.

But investigators determined that the statement written by Joshua Delgado, 18, of 40 Wilbur Peck Ct., Greenwich, was false — that Delgado may have been one of the victims during which cash was taken while the group was in a basement apartment of a Hamilton Avenue building.

Police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray said Delgado "mislead us ... when you make a statement to police it must be truthful. He chose not to be truthful."

Police are trying to determine what if anything was stolen. "Robbery was the reason why we were called and what we're investigating," Gray said. No weapons were recovered, Gray said.

Delgado was released on a promise to appear March 10 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
