NORWALK, Conn. – A Norwalk woman who started a fight with three other women was beaten early Wednesday, police say. The women accused of hurting her were arrested. Sgt. Lisa Cotto did not know the extent of the victim's injuries.
The 22-year-old victim went to the Norwalk Hospital emergency room at about 1 a.m., Cotto said. She identified her attackers to police, Cotto said.
The women went to headquarters at about 3:30 a.m. after being contacted by police, Cotto said. One said she had been at 80 Fair St. when she heard someone yelling an obscenity at her, according to Cotto. It was the victim, who threw something at her as she drove by in a car.
