Borough man arrested for 2nd time on charges tied to assaults
NAUGATUCK – Police arrested a borough man, accused last month of beating another man with a baseball bat at Sullivan’s Cafe, on charges that he assaulted a patron the week before at Bar and Grill on Rubber Avenue.
William Gaynor, 28, of 16 Olive St., was drinking outside the bar formerly known as Construction Cafe on Aug. 15 when a friend of the bartender’s told him he wasn’t allowed to bring drinks outside, according to Naugatuck Police Department spokesman Lt. Robert Harrison. That started an argument that led to a fight, and Gaynor punched the man, causing his face to bleed and swell and possibly injuring his arm, Harrison said.
The man was taken to Waterbury Hospital, Harrison said.
Police arrested Gaynor on Monday and charged him with breach of peace and third-degree assault. He was held on a $25,000 bond to appear Sept. 20 in Waterbury Superior Court.
