NORWALK, Conn. -- A 56-year-old Norwalk man shoved one person and pushed another to the ground during an argument Wednesday, police said.

Police responded to the report of a physical altercation at a home on Fairfield Avenue at 11:30 p.m. Officers made contact with the complainant, who said the fight started as a domestic dispute between the complainant and Leroy Blanding. 

After the argument became a physical, a juvenile came in the room to help break up the fight, according to police. Blanding began yelling at the juvenile and pushed him to the ground, police said.
