NORWALK, Conn. — A Norwalk man was arrested on charges of injuring a man in a fight outside a supermarket Sunday night, police said.

Officers were called to the outside of Superior Supermarket at 42 Woodward Ave. on a report of an armed male fighting with another male, police said. Upon arrival, officers found people standing around a victim, who had a cut to his right hand and an abrasion on his face, according to police.

Officers later found the suspect, Milton Mejia, 23, hiding behind the supermarket in a car, police said. Officers found that Mejia had a razor knife, but they did not find any other weapons in his possession, police said.
