Detectives arrested a 15-year-old male Wednesday afternoon as the alleged assailant who stabbed a man on Monday inside a barbershop on Connecticut Avenue.
In a news release, Detective Bureau Commander Lt. Timothy J. Murphy said investigators learned the identity of the assailant a short time after the attack.
At about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, detectives executed a search warrant and an arrest at the suspect's home in Colonial Village. Murphy said officers spotted him running in the area, and were able to capture him and take him into custody after a short foot chase.
He was remanded to Mead Hall, a state juvenile detention center in Bridgeport.
Police are unable to release his name because he is a juvenile.
He was charged with first-degree assault, third-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, breach of peace and conspiracy.
The 21-year-old victim was stabbed in the arm. Officers were dispatched to Zack's Barber Shop, 135 Connecticut Ave., at about 3:08 p.m. Monday where they reported finding the man bleeding profusely. He was transported by ambulance to Norwalk Hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries, police said.
Murphy said the investigation of the incident continues and further arrests are possible.
