Census Worker Carjacked..Said He Didn’t Count On This

A Census Bureau worker was the victim of a carjacking in Hamden, and the suspect is just 14-years-old.

The 50-year-old Hamden resident was sitting in his car, clearly marked with a Census Bureau sign, on Hamden Park Drive Thursday around 6:00 p.m., according to police.

The victim told police the teen came up to him with a gun and ordered him out of the car, then stole money from him.

Jumping in the car, the teen sped away, but returned a short time later and ordered the victim to drive him to the First Street area, police said.

The teen jumped out of the car at First Street and fled on foot.

Working with several leads, police arrested the 14-year-old suspect around 9:00 p.m. Thursday night.

In a strange incident, the Census employee said he was interrupted while taking a short nap in his vehicle. He stated after having my car stolen,” I decided to stand there and take my mandatory lunch break until further notification.” Police are still unclear why the 14 year old returned to highjack the census employee. The 14 year- old suspect claims he was too young to legally drive, and wanted the 50 year old to drive him.

The Census worker stated, “this wasn’t covered in my 5 week training class and will file suit against the government and Toyota”.
