NORWALK, Conn. – A Norwalk woman was injured Tuesday when her former boyfriend pushed an air conditioner through her bedroom window to reach her and a male friend, whom he then assaulted, according to Norwalk Police. Stanley Easton, 20, of 39 Meadow St. fled the scene but officers tracked him down and arrested him, police said. The 33-year-old woman suffered a cut on her arm, but Sgt. James Boff said he did not know if she had been taken to the hospital.
The woman had been ignoring phone calls from Easton, Boff said, and was hanging out with a man in her Meadow Street apartment. Then she saw him looking in the bedroom window, police said. She went to the window and the air conditioner hit her in the arm as Easton forced his way in, Boff said.
Easton was charged with interfering with an officer, a class A misdemeanor (because he gave a false name, police said), breach of peace second degree, a class A misdemeanor, assault third degree, a class A misdemeanor, criminal violation of a protective order, a class D felony, home invasion, a class A felony, and criminal mischief second degree, a class A misdemeanor. Bond was set at $50,000.
