Be careful who you lend your phone to: You don’t want someone stealing it, much less leading you on a chase that ends with that stranger holding a stun gun saying, “I got kids to feed.”
At least that's the account an unsuspecting resident gave to Milford police about an incident Monday night in the area of Naugatuck and Bridgeport avenues.
The suspect eventually distanced himself from the phone-lender and then police and was lost in the area of Judson Place, police said.
The phone-swiping man, who police said made a couple calls before he fled with the device, is described as a white male in his 20s, 6-feet tall, with a thin build and long dark hair.
Police said the complainant told them the man was wearing a white T-shirt and jeans at the time of the incident, which occurred about 8:30 p.m. Monday.
Anyone with information is asked to call Milford police Detective Sgt. Bassett at 203.877.1465.
