A Franklin Street assault that left the victim with a bleeding head led to the arrest of a Norwalk man, police said today.
According to Lt. David Farrell, Westport officers were dispatched to a Franklin Street address on Thursday, Jan. 21 on a report of a disturbance.
“Officers located an open door and entered the residence,” Farrell said. “The victim was located bleeding from the head.”
Suspect James Olivia, 52, had left the scene, Farrell said, and was located a short time later at his residence in Norwalk.
“Officers determined that Olivia grabbed and struck the victim in the face, then stopped the victim from calling 911,” Farrell said.
Charged with assault and interfering with an emergency call, Olivia was arrested and held on a $10,000 bond and arraigned the next morning in Norwalk Superior Court.
