MERIDEN — A local man faces charges after police said he charged at a man with a knife and struck a woman in the face when she intervened. 

Marcos Vizcarrondo, 27, of 71 Carey Ave., was charged Saturday with criminal attempt to commit second-degree assault, third-degree assault, threatening, second-degree criminal mischief, breach of peace, and first-degree criminal trespass. 

On Sept. 26, police met with a man and a woman after a report of a damaged car on State Street. Police found a car with the side mirror broken off, a dent in the driver’s side door, and damage to the license plate, according to a police report.

The woman told officers she intervened when Vizcarrondo ran toward the man with a knife in his hand, the report said. She also reported Vizcarrondo stuck her in the face. Police noticed a red and black mark on her eye, the report said.

Vizcarrondo was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Monday and released on a promise to appear in court on Oct. 22. He is barred from any contact with the woman.
