Eyewitness News has learned State Representative Hector Robles, Democrat of Hartford and a city police officer, is under investigation by Hartford Police, an investigation that could possibly lead to criminal charges. HPD sources told Channel 3 about the investigation, but would not discuss details. We expect to learn more today.
Robles is facing a primary challenge from Alyssa Peterson, who told voters of the investigation last night at a debate. Peterson talked about the allegations against Robles. You can read about it here www.realhartford.org
Robles was a no-show at the debate last night, saying he was on duty.
When reached by telephone, Robles told us he could not comment. No comment yet from HPD chief Daryl K. Roberts, or House Speaker Christopher Donovan.
