Police caught two alleged street criminals so far this weekend. Two people were shot in two other unrelated incidents.

That word comes from police spokesman Officer David Hartman. Here’s what he said happened:

Dial “A” For Apprehension: Shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday on Daggett Street in the Hill, Officer Robert Maturo saw a 24-year-old man running who matched the description of someone who had allegedly fired off a bunch of bullets. Maturo ran after the man. The man disappeared under a jeep. Then the man’s cellphone went off. Maturo heard it, found the man, and arrested him.

Run To Papa: Two armed men robbed a man and a woman of a pocketbook and a cellphone around 11 p.m. Friday on Mead Street. The man chased one of the muggers. That man, who’s 21 years old, ran right “into the waiting arms of Officers Brian Diange and Michael Lozada, who were conducting a motor vehicle stop nearby.” The other guy got away, at least for now.

Someone shot a 19-year-old man on Dixwell Avenue in Newhallville in the buttocks and mouth shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday; the victim had been seen riding his bike toward Hamden prior to the shooting. He is listed in critical condition. Meanwhile, a little more than 24 hours earlier, a 20-year-old man showed up at Yale-New Haven Hospital’s St. Raphael campus with a gunshot wound in the right calf from what he called a robbery attempt in Newhallville; he later “changed his story” to having “blacked out” after being stabbed, not shot, for reasons he couldn’t remember.
