Police are searching for two men and two women who assaulted and robbed a man at knife point early Wednesday morning after offering him a ride home from the East Norwalk Train Station.
According to police, the victim got off a train around 1:15 a.m. and walked to the Mobil station at East Avenue and Winfield Street in Norwalk, in search of a ride.
Two men agreed to drive him home for $10, at which point the victim got into their car. Police said two women were also sitting in the backseat.
The suspects drove through an unfamiliar section of town, pulled over and forced the victim out of the car. The driver held him at knife point and took his wallet before making the victim get back inside, according to police.
The victim was asked to provide his debit card PIN number. He initially refused and was struck across the face. The two women and male passenger got out, leaving the victim alone with the driver, who was still wielding the knife. The driver threatened to kill the victim if he provided the wrong PIN numbers for all the cards in his wallet, police said.
Police said the man was released somewhere in the area of Wright Street and King's Highway North. The victim described the car as being a dark-colored sedan with a cloth interior.
Police are searching for the suspects, all believed to be in their mid-20s and white. The driver is described as a thin male about 5'10" tall, with a long face, short beard and mustache and short light hair pushed up in the front. Police said he was wearing round metal-framed glasses, a white T-shirt and jeans.
The other male suspect is described as being thin, about 5'7" tall and clean shaven, wearing a white T-shirt, red gym shorts with a stripe running down the leg and black sneakers.
One female suspect had blond hair pulled into a ponytail. The other had straight dark-blond hair.
