Police: Meriden woman assaulted child, punched pregnant woman


MERIDEN — A city woman is facing charges after police say she assaulted her young son and a pregnant woman.

Romona Delvillar, 29, of 88 Twiss St., first floor, was charged Monday with risk of injury to a minor, third-degree assault on a pregnant person, third-degree assault, and second-degree breach of peace. She was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Tuesday and released on a promise to appear in court Sept. 7.

Police responded to the Masonic Temple, 112 E. Main St., about 5:20 p.m. and found Devillar, who was reportedly intoxicated, and another woman involved in a fight, according to a police report. The women were at the venue setting up for a baby shower.

After Delvillar left and returned, witnesses noticed her young son had blood coming from both ears and swelling to his face, the report said. After a relative told Delvillar to leave, Delvillar began throwing items, including a boiling pot of oil.

A pregnant woman stepped outside to avoid Delvillar, but Delvillar followed. Delvillar punched the woman in the face and stomach and grabbed her by the hair, at which point another woman intervened, the report said.

Officers also noticed blood on both of the child’s ears and a cut under his eye, the report said.

During her arraignment, a judge entered a protective order barring Delvillar from any contact with those involved in the altercation. Police said Delvillar’s child was staying with a relative.
