Bridgeport police arrest 'Hot Boy'

Police said Demetrus “Take Down” Robinson, 21, is a major player in a city gang and an instigator in violence that has left two people dead and several wounded in recent weeks. Robinson was charged with attempted first-degree assault, third-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, illegally firing a firearm, possession of a pistol without a permit, criminal mischief and breach of peace. Robinson is held in lieu of $775,000 bond.

Gang conflict is between members of the Greens Boys and other groups from the city’s housing projects.
The Greens Boys are centered in the Greene Homes housing project.
Police said Robinson is known as a “Hot Boy” with the Greens Boys, a term, they said, referring to gang members designated to shoot or fire guns at other people.
