Norwalk Man Charged In Property Damage

NORWALK, Conn. – A Norwalk man shattered the glass door at a laundromat Thursday night while threatening a man who was doing his laundry, Norwalk police say. Marvin Raymundo-Cruz, 24, of 35 Lexington Ave., had been refused entry at a nearby bar because he was intoxicated, Sgt. Lisa Cotto said.

He was arrested and charged with breach of peace.

Cotto gave the following account: A man who had been doing his laundry at 81 North Main St. flagged down a passing patrol car at 11:37 p.m. He said that Cruz wanted to fight him for an unknown reason. While Cruz was inside the laundromat yelling at the victim, he kicked the door.

Witnesses corroborated the story, Cott said. Cruz had several small cuts and scrapes on his face and blood on hands. He was unable to stand without assistance.

Bond was $5,000.

Also on the police blotter:

? Christmas gifts were stolen from an unlocked car parked at a Olmstead Place home Wednesday evening. The victim saw the suspect after the security lights in the back yard came on. The 5 foot-9-inch tall man went into the woods.
