The following accounts were provided by Captain Frederick W. Komm, commander of the investigative services bureau and a spokesman for the department:
A dispute at a home on West Avenue on Sunday, March 25, between a father and son resulted in the 15-year-old son punching the father in the nose, possibly breaking it, police said.
The incident began as a verbal argument and was reported to police at 5:20 p.m. The father's nose was bloody and possibly broken. He was treated by Post 53, then transported to Norwalk Hospital.
The son was charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct and ordered to apper April 3 in state juvenile court.
Two fights alleged at same home
A dispute between a 45-year-old man and the friend of his sister in her home at 52 Edgerton St. led to the man's arrest after a fight on March 16. Later that night, a woman in the same home was arrested after she held a fork to her disabled brother's neck.
The first incident was reported to police at about 7 p.m. Angelo Tuccinardi, 45, of Sunnycrest Road, Trumbul, repeatedly told a 35-year-old Norwalk man to leave the home. The man refused.
Tuccinardi and the man then approached each other, and Tuccinardi threw the man down a flight of stairs, then dragged him outside. The man received a bruise on the right side of his face and a swolen left eye, neither of which required treatment in a hospital.
He called police, who charged Tuccinardi with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment. Tuccinardi was released on a $500 bond.
The second incident was reported at 11:48 p.m. A 66-year-old woman said her daughter, Tina Tuccinardi, 30, of 52 Edgerton St., had struck her on the head with a closed fist.
In the same incident, Tina Tuccinardi picked up a fork and put it up to the neck of her disabled, wheelchair-bound brother, who was unable to defend himself. Another brother separated the two of them, then Tina punched her mother in the face, but not so powerfully that the mother required medical attention.
When police were called to the scene, they discovered that the mother has an order of protection against Tina Tuccinardi. Tuccinardi was charged with third-degree assault on an elderly person, third-degree assault on a disabled person and violation of a protective order. She was initially held on a $5,000 bond.
