STAMFORD, Conn. - A 29-year-old Stamford man was arrested on assault, threatening and carrying a dangerous weapon charges early Monday after an argument turned physical, police said.
The incident started just before 4 a.m. when Wilfredo Bardales-Romero, of Fairfield Avenue, returned home and got into an argument with his brother, police said.
Bardales-Romero’s girlfriend, fearing for her safety while the two men fought, locked herself in the bathroom, police said, which prompted Bardales-Romero to break down the door.
In doing so, he sent shards of wood flying through the air and at least one struck his girlfriend in the leg injuring her, police said. She refused medical attention at the scene, police said.
Bardales-Romero was charged with second-degree assault, carrying a dangerous weapon, third-degree criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and second-degree threatening.
He was held on $100,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Monday.
