Norwalk Woman Charged In Assault

NORWALK, Conn. – A Norwalk woman who said she was hit over the head with a miniature baseball bat in November identified her three attackers from a Facebook post, Norwalk Police say. One of them was arrested on a warrant Thursday.

Sgt. Lisa Cotto gave the following account:

Police were called to Norwalk Hospital at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 30 to talk to an assault victim. The 24-year-old woman had a swollen lip and medical personnel had given her a CAT scan.

She said she had been jumped in a hallway at Roodner Court building 21 at about 3 p.m., just after she left her apartment. She told police she was hit over the head with a two- to three-foot bat by three women, who yelled profanities at her. She tried to fight back but was knocked to the floor.

She told police she did not know who they were but knew what apartment they came from. Police went to that apartment and knocked on the door but no one answered.

When they went back to the hospital, the victim then told officers she knew who had attacked her because she had seen something on Facebook, she said.

LaShunda Jackson, 28, of 93 Richards Ave., was arrested Thursday and charged with breach of peace second degree and assault second degree, Cotto said.

Bond was $15,000. Further arrests are expected.

Jackson told police that her tires had been slashed and that she thinks the victim knows who did it, Cotto said.

Also on the police blotter:

? Peter Robinson, 46, of 8 Couch St., was arrested on suspicion of threatening his neighbor's children Thursday, police say.

Cotto said a woman called police at 7:49 a.m. to complain about a neighbor who is habitually drunk and making comments in the hallway of their apartment building. She told police he had been very loud and yelling curse words at her front door, even threatening to kill the children, Cotto said.

The family wasn't home, but the woman is the only one in the complex with children. Because of his past behavior, she said, she became very nervous and called police, Cotto said.

Officers talked to Robinson. After they left, he again threatened the woman's children, Cotto said. He was charged with threatening second degree and disorderly conduct. Bond was $5,000.

? A CL&P truck hit the East Avenue Metro-North overpass at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday. Cotto said the truck's boom portion hit the lowest part of the bridge, a height of 9 feet, 6 inches. The driver suffered a minor knee injury.
