NY Men Charged in September Stamford Assault

The men face charges stemming from an incident in which several people attacked one man—until the victim turned the tables and pulled out a gun.

NY Men Charged in September Stamford Assault

Two New York men were charged Wednesday afternoon in the beating of a man as he left a nightclub with a woman in late September, police announced Thursday.

According to police, the victim in the September 23 incident was leaving a nightclub with a female acquaintance he'd met that evening when approximately half-a-dozen men allegedly attacked the victim.

Police said the victim pulled a gun he had a legal permit to carry when he felt himself beginning to lose consciousness during the beating, and fired several times at the group, striking two men.

The two suspects who turned themselves into police were identified as Stephen Anthony Colangelo, 19, of Old Havestraw Rd. in Congers, and a Cedric Savinon, 23, of Stockton Rd. in Valley Cottage. Neither were either of the shooting victims in the alleged attack.

The gun used in the incident was not found at the scene and has not yet been recovered by authorities.
