New Canaan Police on Thursday arrested a 21-year-old Florida man with a long arrest history in Fairfield County and charged him with second-degree assault.
Chance Perrone of 1605 John Young Parkway in Kissimmee, Fla. also was charged with disorderly conduct.
He was arrested for an incident reported to police on Dec. 16, 2019, involving Perrone and a victim at a local home, officials said.
Based on an investigation, police obtained a warrant for his arrest, according to a police report. On April 8, police traveled to state Superior Court in Stamford to take him into custody on the charges.
It’s not clear what the 2019 incident involved, what injuries the victim sustained, what weapon or instrument Perrone used or whether or not he is related to the victim.
Under state law, second-degree assault happens when a person causes “serious physical injury to another person” or “with intent to cause physical injury to another person, the actor causes such injury to such person or to a third person by means of a deadly weapon or a dangerous instrument other than by means of the discharge of a firearm,” among other reasons.
According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, Perrone had been arrested by Wilton, Greenwich, Stamford and Norwalk Police for offenses dating back several years and charged with multiple counts of first-degree criminal mischief, third-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief, sixth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny, second-degree criminal mischief and violation of probation.
