Norwalk Police Break Up Large Crowd

NORWALK, Conn. – A youthful offender was Tasered early Sunday after Norwalk police encountered a large unruly crowd on Isaac Street while responding to a report of people shooting at each other, Sgt. James Boff said.

"There was no shooting," Boff said of the 12:51 a.m. call. Police arriving on Isaac Street found multiple people running off in several directions. They pursued some to Chapel Street, where witnesses were "very uncooperative." Officers tried to break up the disturbance, and most people complied. But a 17-year-old refused and began fighting with police. He was Tasered, arrested and charged with breach of peace, interfering with an officer and youthful offender.

Also on the police blotter:

• An unwanted guest at a Colonial Village party Saturday night drew a .22-caliber revolver and ran into the woods with another man, according to the complainant of a 9:46 p.m. call, Boff said. The woman reported three men with a gun running through her Suncrest Road back yard. When officers arrived, she told them that a young man crashed the party at her home, threw a drink at a partygoer and got into a physical fight with that person. He then pulled the gun from his pocket.

The gun was passed to another man, and they both ran into the woods. Although she provided a description, she became uncooperative, Boff said. There are no suspects, and the matter was still under investigation.
