MERIDEN — A city resident faces charges after police say he robbed a man and beat him up man so badly the man was admitted to the hospital.

Luis Delgado, 24, of 120 Gravel St., was arrested Oct. 15 and charged with second-degree robbery, fourth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit second-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit fourth-degree larceny.

Police say Delgado met with the man in the parking lot of 120 Gravel St. on Sept. 11 to discuss an ongoing dispute. The man was dating Delgado’s ex-girlfriend, and it had caused tension, said Lt. Sal Nesci, police spokesman.

Delgado then started punching the man with help from two or three other people, Nesci said. The man was taken to Hartford Hospital where he was put in the Intensive Care Unit, Nesci said. Delgado and the other assailants went through the man’s pockets and took his belongings, Nesci said.

Police identified Delgado through a witness statement but do not know who the other men were, Nesci said.

Delgado was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail and is due in Meriden Superior Court on Oct. 29.
