A Park Avenue man, who has an assault case pending, was charged again Sunday evening with assaulting the same woman.
Sunil Mehta, 45, was charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and violation of protective order after they said he went to the victim's business on the Post Road and slapped her several times with an open hand.
There was a protective order issued against Mehta after a July 31 incident, when he was charged with assault, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and harassment. Mehta was told at that time to have no contact with the victim.
Police were called just before 7 p.m. Sunday when a relative of the victim arrived at the business and found the victim had suffered minor injuries. Mehta still on the scene, police said.
He was held on a $100,000 bond and was scheduled to appear the next day in Bridgeport Superior Court.
