FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Fairfield man who has had several run-ins with police was arrested again Saturday after he assaulted an ex-girlfriend and three of her friends who tried to help her, police said.
Christopher Pecora, 21, of Rakoczy Avenue, who is on probation and was wearing an ankle monitoring device, was charged with four counts of third-degree assault and one count of breach of peace, police said.
Pecora and his ex-girlfriend were in a verbal dispute that turned physical near a home on Black Rock Turnpike, police said. When her three friends tried to help her, Pecora assaulted them, police said.
He was released on $5,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court Monday, June 19.
Pecora has been arrested in Fairfield on weapons and drug charges and for interfering with an officer, police said. Earlier this year, he was fleeing from police and an officer found him because he was talking on his cellphone, saying "“Help! Help! The police are coming after me! I can’t get arrested again!”
