Olivia Hobbs, 23, of Division Avenue, was charged with second-degree breach of peace and second-degree threatening after allegedly confronting and assaulting a 16-year-old on a School Street porch with friends.
Hobbs allegedly drove up, told the teen to stop talking about her cousin, said she had a gun and threatened to put a bullet in her head. Hobbs then got out of her car, according to police, and the 16-year-old asked, "Who are you?" Hobbs then allegedly punched her and both grappled on the ground. The teen told police she attacked Hobbs in self-defense.
When officers arrived on scene, both females had cuts on their knees. Hobbs did not have a gun in her possession, police said. Hobbs was released on a promise to April 29 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
