NORWALK, Conn. A prolonged family argument got two Norwalk brothers arrested Monday, after their sister was punched and her door was kicked in, Norwalk police say. Her 5-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter were present when the fight occurred, Sgt. Lisa Cotto said.
This account comes from Cotto: The victim called police at 4:45 p.m. Sunday. She said her brothers, Mike Saint-Victor, 23, and Jeffrey Saint-Victor, 18, both of 42 Lincoln Ave., went to her Harbor Avenue apartment and began yelling at her. Mike Saint-Victor punched her. They left but then came back, and Mike Saint-Victor knocked on the door. She refused to let them in, so he kicked the door open. Jeffery Saint-Victor arrived. He pushed her, and Mike Saint-Victor grabbed her and shoved her. She tried to call police, but they threw the phone out of the apartment.
Her left eye was swollen when police arrived, and the door was broken. She did not need medical attention.
Police went to their apartment, but they weren't home. Police returned there at 8:30 a.m. Monday and arrested Jeffrey Saint-Victor. Mike Saint-Victor turned himself in later.
They were both charged with two counts of first-degree burglary, disorderly conduct, third-degree assault, third-degree criminal mischief and injury/risk/impairing morals. Bond for each was set at $10,000.
Also on the police blotter:
A 41-year-old woman was found dead in a stairwell Monday morning at 14 Bedford Ave. The woman, a resident of Keystone House, has a history of medical problems, Cotto said. Police checked her apartment and found everything in order, including numerous medications. The death does not look suspicious, and the medical examiner will investigate.
