The South Windsor Police Department arrested a man who is wanted in connection with a brutal attack of two employees at an automotive business in town last week.
Nathaniel "Nate" Chambers, 27, of Meriden, was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with first-degree conspiracy to commit assault and first-degree conspiracy to commit robbery. He is being held on a $250,000 bond and is expected to be arraigned at Manchester Superior Court on Wednesday.
South Windsor police said they responded to Forced Induction Motorsports, LLC, which works on high-performance cars, on Edwin Road about 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 8 after one of the victims called 911 for help.
Police said Chambers and another man were involved in an assault on business owner Robert Lareau, 28, of Enfield and Ryan Kelleher, 21, of Windsor, with a pipe or pipe-like object.
Lareau and Kelleher were brought to Hartford Hospital with serious injuries. Their conditions were unknown as of Tuesday afternoon.
Police have not released any kind of theory on what the motive was for this attack, but do not believe it was random.
Chambers was suffering from the flu and went to the Veterans Hospital in West Haven. Officials at the hospital called police and he was arrested Tuesday afternoon, according to police.
The incident remains under investigation by the South Windsor Police Department and investigators are looking for other suspects and witnesses.
Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the Edwin Road area Tuesday night is asked to call the South Windsor Police Department at 860-644-2551.
