Police charged a Trumbull man with illegally possessing high-capacity pistol magazines following an alleged assault at a Twitchgrass Road residence April 5.

According to police, Mark Domulevicz, 64, was involved in an altercation where he ripped a phone out of the victim’s hand, causing minor injury to the victim’s wrist and also tearing off part of a fingernail. The victim went to a nearby medical clinic.

After the incident was reported to police, officers informed Domulevicz that he was going to be arrested and asked if he had any weapons.
