Norwich police arrest Norwalk man in domestic violence assault

Norwich — A Norwalk man was arrested on assault and other charges Wednesday afternoon following a domestic violence incident on Cliff Street that brought a large police response to the neighborhood after initial erroneous reports of gunshots, police said.

Marlon Standburry, 44, was charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, second-degree criminal mischief and interfering with a 911 call. The female victim was transported by ambulance to The William W. Backus Hospital with an injury that was not life-threatening, police said.

Police Sgt. Nick Rankin said officers received the initial call at 1:53 p.m. that reported two shots were fired and a woman was bleeding, prompting a large police response to the apartment house at 103 Cliff St., owned by Bethsaida Community Inc. Some neighbors who were outside were ordered away from the immediate area as the scene was secured.

Bethsaida Community Inc. provides housing and other support services to formerly homeless and at-risk women. Bethsaida Executive Director Claire Silva declined to comment immediately on the incident Wednesday afternoon.
