Disorderly, Assault Charges After Fight on Lakeview Avenue

Police on Saturday night arrested two residents of a Lakeview Avenue home and charged the with second-degree breach of peace and disorderly conduct.

One of those arrested, a 25-year-old woman, additionally was charged with third-degree assault.

At about 9:32 p.m. on July 28, officers were dispatched to an apartment complex on a report that a dispute between two people there had turned physical, police said.

Following an investigation, authorities found that each “had an altercation with the victim,” according to a police report, and brought the misdemeanor charges against the woman as well as a 29-year-old man.

It isn’t clear whether arrested people are related to the victim, how they’re related to each other (same last name), what the dispute involved, in what way it turned physical or what was the extent of the victim’s injuries. Police declined to provide details, saying the incident was a domestic matter.

Under state law, a person is guilty of disorderly conduct when, with intent to cause inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening behavior; or by offensive or disorderly conduct, annoys or interferes with another person, among other reasons.

A person is guilty of third-degree assault, according to state law, when “with intent to cause physical injury to another person, he causes such injury to such person or to a third person” or “recklessly causes serious physical injury to another person or “with criminal negligence, he causes physical injury to another person by means of a deadly weapon, a dangerous instrument or an electronic defense weapon.”

Police released both after they promised to appear Monday in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
