Police: Danbury men, New Milford man charged with Woodbury assault
DANBURY — Three men were recently charged in connection with an assault earlier this year that left the victim with “five significant slashing wounds,” according to police.
Kyle W. Morrissey, 19, of Danbury, was charged with first degree robbery, first degree assault and conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery. He was held on a $350,000 bond.
Edmon L. Lasane Jr., 21, of Danbury, was charged with conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery. He was held on a $250,000 bond.
Miguel A. Acevedo, 19, of New Milford, was charged with first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery. He was held on a $250,000 bond.
The charges stemmed from an incident on March 23, according to their arrest warrants.
Around 12:30 p.m. on March 23, member of the Connecticut state police and Woodbury resident trooper’s office responded to a Main Street North address on a report of a 16-year-old victim who had been stabbed, the affidavit said.
The victim told investigators he was assaulted by three unidentified men at the Shell gas station at 24 Main St. North. He was taken to Waterbury Hospital by ambulance to be treated for his injuries.
At 3:20 p.m., officers went to check on the victim in the hospital, finding him with “five significant slashing wounds all of which required both internal and external sutures,” the affidavit said. The victim had a wound on the back of his neck, his left shoulder blade, interior area of his right forearm, his right upper thigh quad area and the lower calf area of his right leg.
The victim said he was doing online schooling when he got a message over social media from someone claiming they wanted to buy an ounce of marijuana, according to the affidavit.
When the victim went to the gas station to meet up with the buyer, one of them told him to give them all his stuff and punch him, the victim told police. He told police he and the three suspects started “scuffling” and the next thing he knew, “I felt (I) was getting stabbed in the neck.”
Once the suspects left, the victim said he drove down the road a bit, pulled over and called the police.
Investigators reviewed video surveillance from the gas station and ultimately identified and tracked down three suspects in connection with the incident.
