Norwalk resident Gilbert Aponte, Kevin Depres of Trumbull and Yvania Collazo of Bridgeport were each arrested and charged with breach of peace and assault Saturday after a Norwalk police sergeant observed them kicking and punching a man who was lying on the ground, trying to cover himself.
When the sergeant came across the assault at 2:15 a.m. at 467 West Ave., witnesses surrounding the fight were using their cell phones to take pictures instead of calling 911.
Police said Aponte, Depres and Collazo did not respond to commands to stop, and officers had to drag them to the ground to make the arrests and gain control of the situation. The victim refused medical attention, although police said he had abrasions. No motive was given.
Also from the police blotter:
A Norwalk woman who breeds dogs reported that Luna, a female puppy, was missing. The woman had bred her female Shih Tzu with a male dog belonging to a Stamford couple, who have had a key to the Norwalk home for the past nine weeks to facilitate this process. They have been promised one of the three puppies, a male. The Norwalk breeder is keeping another female. Luna has been sold to another party. The woman said that when she returned from work Saturday the puppy was missing. The Stamford couple told police that they hadn't been to the home Saturday. The victim said Luna is worth $5,000.
A 41-year-old man reported Saturday that his 39-year-old brother had used his personal information to open bank accounts in his name. The brothers have the same first and last names but different middle names. The victim checked his credit report online and discovered the accounts. One account had $683 in it and the other had $282. The brother had allegedly obtained a telephone through Sprint with the false ID, had attempted to open an account with Cablevision and had an account with Yankee Gas. The victim closed them all and put a fraud alert on his credit report.
