Boyfriend beats girlfriend outside Bow Tie Cinemas
A Norwalk man was arrested for breach of peace in the second degree, criminal violation of a protective order and assault in the third degree at 6:06 p.m. at the Bow Tie Cinemas on Quarry Road Wednesday, April 13.
Police said Raheim Coverson, 30, called Trumbull headquarters and said that a female was trying to stab him with a knife.
According to a report, two officers responded to the movie theater complex and interviewed Coverson, who was incoherent in giving his statement and slow to respond to questions.
While he was being interviewed, the second officer spoke to a Bow Tie employee, who said that Coverson had beaten up his girlfriend in the parking lot after the couple had gone into the theater minutes earlier.
Police said a second witness in the parking lot confirmed seeing Coverson get into a verbal argument with female victim before she was thrown onto the gravel, where he struck her in the face and forcefully held her down.
The female victim was found later and testified that she picked up Coverson, with whom she has a full no-contact protective order, to go to the movies. She told police he left the theater shortly after the movie started and never returned.
She added that she was afraid he was going to steal her car and that’s when she left the theater and found him in the parking lot trying to break into the vehicle.
The report said she had several bruises on her face and abrasions on her wrists from the incident.
He was held on a $5,000 bond and taken to court court Thursday, April 14.
