Teen charged with assaulting stepfather
A Fairfield teen was charged with assault about 11:30 p.m. Sunday after police said he hit his stepfather at their home on Orchard Hill Lane.
Christopher M. Blanc, 18, charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct after a physical altercation with his stepfather, who according to the report, had asked him if he had been drinking.
Police said Blanc punched the stepfather in the face and the stepfather then wrestled him to the ground. The stepfather let him back up, at which time Blanc punched him in the forehead, police said.
The stepfather had a red scratch mark on his cheek, police said.
Blanc's bond was $5,000 and he was scheduled to have appeared Tuesday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
