Two Men Arrested After Domestic Dispute at Logan Road Home

Police before dawn Monday arrested two Logan Road men following a domestic dispute at their home.

At about 1:51 a.m. on May 7, officers were dispatched to the home on a report of a dispute between two residents there, police said.

Following an investigation, police found that the 21-year-old man was involved in a dispute with the victim, and charged him with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct. They also arrested a 51-year-old man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

It isn’t clear what the dispute involved, who the victim was, to what degree he or she was injured or whether the two arrested men are related to each other or the victim. Police declined to provide details, saying it was a domestic matter.

A person is guilty of third-degree assault, under state law, when with intent to cause physical injury to another person, he or she 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.

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.

The younger man was held on $25,000 bond and scheduled to appear the same day in state Superior Court in Norwalk. The older man was released after promising to appear the same day.
