Jewett City – Suspect Arrested For Serious Injuries

A man suspected of assault and larceny was arrested by state police yesterday.

46-year-old Matthew Kelly from Norwich has been charged by authorities with third-degree larceny and first-degree assault stemming from a March 25 incident where he stole a car and ran over its owner. That day, a 67-year-old man parked his Ford Focus at a Country Farms store on Main Street, leaving his car unlocked in the parking area. Kelly entered the car while its owner was inside the store and tried to leave the area. The owner ran outside to apprehend the suspect and was directly hit by Kelly, throwing him off the car and onto the road. Kelly then ran over the victim twice before leaving the scene. The victim sustained serious injuries, including several fractures. According to officials, Kelly has a history of DUI, burglary and larceny cases.
