Two Norwalk teens were arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly confroning a police officer who was attempting to break up a fight.
At 12:04 a.m., patrol Officer Justin Bisceglie radioed there was a fight uptown involving 30 to 40 youths near the intersection of Wall and Isaac streets. A 17-year-old male broke away from the commotion and started to run, and Bisceglie chased him.
Biscelgie reported he pulled him down to the sidewalk at Wall Street and West Avenue. While he was putting handcuffs on the youth, a 19-year-old male reportedly walked up to Biscelgie and spit on his uniform.
Another officer ordered the male to stop, but he reportedly began walking away. When the officer again told him to stop, the youth allegedly turned toward the officer took an "aggressive position." The officer then pulled him down and handcuffed him.
Police could not release the names of the youths because they are less than 18 years old.
The 17-year-old was charged with interferring with an officer and breach of peace. The 16-year-old was charged with assault on a police officer and interferring with an officer.
There were no reports of further arrests or action taken at the scene of the fight.
