A Hill Farm Road man was charged with assaulting his estranged wife Oct. 28 while she attempted to gather items from the master bedroom, police said.

The incident was reported to police Oct. 29 and Peter Clarke, 47, was arrested on a warrant Thursday, charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct.

According to the report, police saw bruises on Clarke's wife when she made the complaint, allegedly a result of his pushing her into a wall.

He was released on a promise to appear Friday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
