A verbal argument that turned physical in Fairfield County led to an assault charge for a man who allegedly injured an elderly person with a “heavy pillow,” police said.
Officers from the Westport Police Department responded to an area home shortly after 10:45 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 23, where there was a report of a disturbance that required medical evaluation.
Police said upon arrival, officers determined that a verbal argument had taken place in the home, which escalated and led to Westport resident Timothy Lester striking his victim in the head with a “heavy pillow.”
The force of the strike reportedly caused injuries, police said.
Officers investigating the incident arrested Lester, who was charged with third-degree assault of an elderly person and disorderly conduct.
Lester posted $1,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court this week to respond to the charges.
