NORWALK, Conn. – A Bridgeport man was accused of swinging a hockey stick at bystanders outside a Norwalk bar early Sunday, according to police reports.
Employees at Brennan’s Tap Room on Connecticut Avenue called officers to report that the man had caused a disturbance in the bar, police said. Osvaldo Hernandez, 28, entered the bar and began banging billiard balls on one of the bar’s pool tables and yelling at the staff, police said.
Bouncers took Hernandez outside, where he struck a bystander near the eye, according to witness reports. He then left the area briefly and returned with a hockey stick, the police report said. Hernandez swung the stick around, and struck four people, police said.
None of the victims requested a trip to the hospital for treatment, police said. The man struck went to the hospital later on his own and received a stitch for his injury, according to the police report.
Hernandez was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, third-degree assault, reckless endangerment and breach of peace. His bond was set at $5,000, and he is due in court on Dec. 17.
