"It frustrates me because I walk home from work and when I'm walking down this part of Dixwell this time of night I get nervous. It actually has made me think of moving the other side of Hamden," said Pete Palmieri, of Hamden.

A description of the suspects has not been released.

The Hamden police K9 unit is investigating, along with Major Crimes and Crime Scene Units, as well as the New Haven State's Attorney's office.
