Johannes Bahadourian, 42, of Collingwood Avenue, was charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct after an argument with his wife Tuesday at their home.

Bahadourian came home in a "bad mood,' his wife told police, and yelled that he wanted to talk with her. She told him that she didn't want to talk while their children were around, according to the report, and that she was going to the hairdresser's.

Bahadourian, she said, then grabbed her arm and tried to drag her up the stairs, and stopped only when their 13-year-old yelled at him, police said. The wife then ran to lock herself in the bathroom and called police.

Bahadourian was released on a promise to have appeared Wednesday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
