Stamford teen charged in assault case
A 16-year-old Stamford male was charged with third-degree assault, second-degree breach of peace and interfering with an emergency call Friday, July 20.
The charges stem from an incident that took place in June, when police said he assaulted a 16-year-old New Canaan teen on Maple Street.
Police said the victim, a male, was walking with a couple of friends on South Avenue near the Mobil station when two other male youths began shouting at him. The teen continued walking south and saw the other youths again once they reached Maple Street.
The New Canaan teen told police he was punched and kicked in the face by one of the other youths. By the time police arrived at the scene, the two teens had left.
The victim suffered minor injuries, with a swollen face and bloody nose, police said.
The Stamford teen is scheduled to appear in juvenile court in Stamford on July 31 at 9 a.m.
