SHELTON, CT (WFSB) -

Police released the 911 calls after a robbery where suspects stole life-size signs of David Hasselhoff from a gas station in Shelton and a store clerk was critically injured.

Police are searching for two more suspects involved in the robbery of Cumberland Farms on River Road early Tuesday morning.

Investigators across the country said that people are stealing big signs with photos Hasselhoff, who is known for his roles on Night Rider and Baywatch, drinking iced coffee on them.

According to police, a black SUV pulled into the parking lot of Cumberland Farms around 1 a.m. A man got out of the vehicle and started cutting two signs off a light pole, police said.

The unidentified victim approached the vehicle in an attempt to get the signs back, and that's when the vehicle sped away dragging the victim behind until he spun around, flipped backwards and landed on his head.

When police arrived, the 36-year-old victim was brought to Bridgeport Hospital. He remained  in critical condition Wednesday.

A 19-year-old man turned himself into police and told investigators that he was the driver of the SUV.

Police have not released his name at this time, but said he is cooperating with the investigation.

Investigators said no arrests have been made at this time and none are expected on Wednesday.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Shelton Police Department at 203-924-1544.
