Original story: STAMFORD, Conn. -- A woman holding her 10-month-old son in her arms grabbed a pool chair and threw it a teenager during a brawl involving her husband and teens at Morgan Street apartment complex swimming pool Friday evening, Stamford police said.

A 35-year-old Stamford man and his 34-year-old wife were each charged with second-degree breach of peace and risk of injury to a child. He was also charged with third-degree assault.

Arman Reja, 18, of Union Street, Stamford, was charged with second-degree breach of peace and third-degree assault. A 16-year-old male, whose name was not released because he is under 18, was also charged with third-degree assault.

The incident began when the man confronted a group of teenagers who he said were rough-housing at the pool, police said. He was concerned about the safety of his 2-year-old and 10-month-old children, police said.

Security arrived on the scene and broke up the disturbance, all of which was captured on the complex's surveillance video, police said.
