Bridgeport man among three charged with using fake gun to rob teenager

A man from Bridgeport is among three people charged with using a real-looking fake gun to rob a teenager.



It happened Friday night on Fox Run Lane.



Michael Dawson and another man allegedly robbed the victim as he rode his dirt bike.



News 12 Connecticut is told the suspects wrapped the tip of a BB gun with black tape so it looked like a real gun.



A West Haven woman who was with them is also being charged.
