NEW CANAAN — Police are still working with prosecutors and judges to come up with charges linked to a March underage drinking party that sent one male to the hospital with serious injuries.
In the late night hours of March 25, a local teenage boy was rushed to Norwalk Hospital after he was injured in what is believed to have been a fight at a house party on Oenoke Ridge Road. Chief Leon Krolikowski said what happened that night leading to the boy’s injuries is still under investigation, with police still accepting tips from the community and interviewing people who were at the party.

“It’s impacted the community significantly,” he said of the party. “We’re hoping it serves as an example as we’re entering party season. We’re hoping people are a lot more aware and they call us when they hear of parties, underage drinking and drug use.”
Krolikowski said he hopes the incident brings more awareness to the serious medical, legal and criminal consequences of underage drinking, as well as hosting parties, especially as prom, graduation and summer approach.
