Robbers shot a clerk then mugged a customer at Dunkin’ Donuts on Kimberly Avenue.

The attack took place at 9:20 p.m. Wednesday.

Here’s what happened, according to police spokesman Officer David Hartman:

Two masked gunmen “made an attempt to rob the cash” at the 255 Kimberly Ave. shop. They didn’t get the money, but they did shoot the clerk, who is in his mid-30s.

On the way out, they “held up an adult male patron who was there with his two children.” They got $25, then fled in a white car.

The customer wasn’t physically injured. The clerk went to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call New Haven detectives at 203-946-6304.

Farmington Canal Robbery: Also on Wednesday, two muggers stole an iPod from a jogger on the Farmington Canal trail. One of the muggers was walking, the other riding a bike, when they stopped the male jogger “near Science Park at Munson Street at about 1:20 p.m.,” according to an email message sent to the Yale community by Yale Police Chief Ronnell Higgins.

I live downtown and walk downtown and no matter the time of day, nor place, I’m always aware of the possibility of being hit up for money,  mugged, robbed or assaulted. Now I ask you, is this the description of a civilized city? And, don’t get me started about the litter on the Green nor the filth in and around the bus stops. Everything on the Yale grid seems cleaner and safer; off the grid, forget it.
New Haven needs to take back its town and make is better for all. I’m sure even homeless persons feel threatened.
