A Stamford man tried Tuesday to run over a Norwalk man who owed him $40, Norwalk Police say. The Stamford man then got out of the car with a baseball bat and smashed the Norwalk mans front door.
Francisco Colon, 20, of Stamford was charged with criminal mischief, threatening, carrying a dangerous weapon, reckless driving over 85 miles per hour and criminal attempt to commit assault. Bond was $10,000.
Police said the Norwalk man called 911 and when officers arrived they found Colon hiding behind a tree with the bat in his hand. Colons car was still on the bush and there were skid marks on the lawn, officers said. They said Colon admitted what he had done. "Yeah, he owes me money," Sgt. Lisa Cotto quoted Colon as saying. "He wouldn't pay, so I tried to run him over." He also admitted breaking the glass, police said.
