Reward offered for arrest in New Britain beating


A reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest where a New Britain man was beaten to death in May.

James Joseph Sr., 71, was found suffering from life-threatening injuries in his home on South Main Street on May 14.

Joseph was transported to Hartford Hospital, but he later died from injuries he suffered in the attack.

Joseph's death was ruled a homicide by multiple blunt force trauma.

New Britain police said Joseph was struck with some kind of blunt force object to his head and other parts of his body inside his home by one attacker and possibly more after he went to a nearby Valero gas station.

Police are not sure if it was a random attack or if Joseph was a target.

The beating is still under investigation by the New Britain Police Department as detectives continue to analyze forensic evidence.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the New Britain police at 860-826-3134 or 860-826-3120.
