HARTFORD — Two people were arrested following an incident in Hartford yesterday.
Authorities say they were notified of an assault and robbery at the South on 5 Motel on North Hartland Road at around 10:30 a.m.
While officers were responding, they learned that the suspects also attempted to force the victim into a vehicle.

Police say the vehicle was being operated by a man.
The vehicle was identified as a black hatchback SUV with New Hampshire registration 4955759.
Given the serious nature of the incident, the Criminal Investigation Division took over the investigation.
