FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A 52-year-old Fairfield man was charged with third-degree assault after he broke his ex-wife’s car window and then became physically and verbally abusive to her in front of their teenage children, police said.

The couple’s son had been driving his mother’s car, which broke down, and the father had gotten the vehicle home around 9:15 p.m. Oct. 18, when he smashed the rear window with his hand, police said.

When he came into the home, he was “upset” and his hand was bleeding, according to the report.

He grabbed his ex-wife and threw her across the kitchen, police said. He then struck her in the face and one of the sons stepped in to stop the incident, police said.

The woman reported the incident on Oct. 19 and police filed for a warrant.

Fairfield police arrested the suspect at a Wallingford home on Friday, police said. He was charged with third-degree assault, second-degree criminal mischief and interfering with emergency calls, police said.

He posted $10,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 31.
