An altercation between two teens Monday morning led to the arrest of one and the injuring of the other.
Hamden Police got a report of a domestic dispute involving a knife at a Warner Street address at about 11:30 a.m. Monday, according to police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith.
Officers found that an argument between a 17-year-old girl and her 18-year-old boyfriend escalated to the point where it turned physical, Smith said.
"The victim, who was bit in the hand, was physically restrained from leaving the premises," Smith said in a release Monday. "She was able to escape his grasp, with the assistance of her mother. She advised officers that he was in the possession of a knife.
"Moments later, Officer Craig Appleby and his K-9 partner “Hunter” entered the apartment," Smith said. "The 18-year-old subsequently surrendered to Officer Derick Manning."
The 18-year-old, whose identity wasn't released, was charged with second-degree unlawful restraint, third-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
He posted $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court today.
The name of the arrestee is not being released at this time.
