Three men have been jailed with assaulting a Norwalk man in connection with a fight at a local bar and three additional suspects are expected to be arrested.

Damarquis C. Brown, 31, of 206 Jefferson St., Stephon Harkness, 25, of 10A State St., and Michael Zika, 24, of 224A E. Main St., have been arrested and are charged with one count each of aggravated rioting. If convicted, the defendants faces six to 18 months behind bars.

The fourth-degree felonies are in connection with a Feb. 9 incident.

"They were at Bluto's. The victim and a friend went out to the patio to smoke. These three (suspects) and two others came out to the patio and ultimately got into a fight. They poured beer on him and physically hurt him," Norwalk Law Director Stuart O'Hara said. "Another person joined in the melee.

"He (the victim) had bruises and cuts. I don't believe he went to the hospital," he added.

It's unknown what started the incident.

O'Hara said three other suspects hadn't been arrested as of Friday morning. According to Norwalk Municipal Court records, prosecutors also filed aggravated rioting charges Thursday against Stewart W. Harkness Jr., 31, of 14 W. League St.; Adewale A. Olaniayn, 37, of 56 Parsons St.; and Dennis M. Adams, 20, of 56 N. Linwood Ave.

"Aggravated rioting is when a person along with (at least) four other people engaged in disorderly conduct to cause harm to someone," O'Hara said.

Statistics show that, year after year, blacks commit an inordinate percentage of crime in this country. 13% of the population commits almost HALF the crime in this country. They just can't behave. That's not racist, that's a FACT. But it's our own fault, we brought them here, and now we're paying for it. Call me racist all you want, I speak the truth.


TYPICAL for these WANNABE thugs. Call it what you will. I have met the one in the middle, on a few occasions, and saw him get drop kicked in the face. Then, of course, the one with the girly hair, came running to the rescue lmao. They never can settle a one on one with another MAN.
