Fight Leads to Arrest in Trumbull

Fight Leads to Arrest in Trumbull
Pedro Jorge Couto, 35, is charged with risk of injury to a minor, disorderly conduct, third-degree assault and failure to appear in court.

Police said he was watching the Trumbull home of his children for several days. When the children's mother returned, the home was a mess and the two began fighting.

Couto started throwing objects around the house, and punched and slapped the woman, who did not need medical attention.

His bond was sat at $35,000 for an appearance in Bridgeport Superior Court.
