MILFORD - A 23-year-old Bridgeport man is accused of shoplifting merchandise at Dick’s Sporting Good and threatening to stab the store manager.

Latrell Baker, of Burnsford Avenue, was charged with robbery, larceny, threatening, breach of peace and conspiracy.

On Oct. 22 at around 3:30 p.m., officers responded to Dick's Sporting Goods, located at the Post Mall.

“Upon arrival they determined that four people had just stolen upwards of $1,500 of merchandise and left the store prior to police arrival.

“The accused was confronted by the manager and staff and struck one of them in an attempt to flee and threatened to stab the manager,” police said.

Police will likely make additional arrests in this case as the investigation is still ongoing.
