SOUTH WINDSOR — South Windsor Police Department reported a series of arrests involving vehicle-related incidents and other offenses that occurred in late 2023 and resulted in multiple individuals facing charges.

On March 26 at 10:10 a.m., SWPD officers arrested Jasmine S. Grant, 29, of Hartford, following an active arrest warrant related to a November incident.

Grant is accused of assaulting an individual and unlawfully taking a rental U-Haul truck that belonged to the victim.

She was processed and appeared at Manchester Superior Court on the same day, where she remained in state custody due to charges from other jurisdictions.

Later that day, at 4:53 p.m., Patricia Ann Ruggiero, 46, of Waterbury, was arrested on an active warrant connected to a December theft at a local Target, where she stole merchandise valued at $277.98.

Ruggiero hit an SWPD cruiser and another vehicle with her car while attempting to escape the scene.

Connecticut State Police apprehended Ruggiero before she was handed over to SWPD custody.

Ruggiero was released on a $10,000 non-surety bond and is set to appear in Manchester Superior Court on April 10 at 9 a.m.

The third arrest of the day occurred at 9:09 p.m. when Robert Wilkinson, 73, of Vernon, was charged with disorderly conduct after a road rage incident.

Wilkinson allegedly approached the victim’s vehicle aggressively, causing the victim to reverse to avoid confrontation.

Wilkinson received a misdemeanor summons and is scheduled for a court appearance on April 10 at 9 a.m., coinciding with Ruggiero’s scheduled appearance.
