NORWALK, Conn. A Norwalk man discovered that his car's windshield and several windows were smashed Wednesday evening when he returned home after "being out all day," Norwalk Police say. A neighbor identified a teen suspect.
The man came home to 25 Country Club Road at about 8 p.m. and found the damaged car. There were rocks around the vehicle. Police say the bumpers, the hood, the windshield and the right passenger doors and windows were damaged. A neighbor reported seeing a 14-year old boy in the yard, and knew who the youth was.

? Restaurant patrons who were upset with being charged for an appetizer they didn't like Wednesday night threw their drink glasses on the floor, breaking them, police say. The restaurant's owner called police but then refused to press charges.
Two male and female couples were dining together at Pasta Nostra, 114 Washington St., and ordered the artichoke appetizer. They had expected it to be hot but were disappointed to discover it was cold, Sgt. James Boff said. The waiter said all he could do was wrap it up to go, according to the account.
When the bill came the women were upset and arguing that they shouldn't have to pay for the appetizer, Boff said. They said they wouldn't leave the waiter a tip unless it was taken off the bill. The manager came over to speak to them, and they threw the glasses and the water in them on the floor.
The men paid the bill by credit card. Police tracked them down after the owner called to report the incident at 10:40 p.m. Police identified the women, but the restaurant's owner said he didn't want to press charges. Nor did he want them in the restaurant again.
