Wallingford man faces home invasion, assault charges


WALLINGFORD — A local man faces charges of home invasion and assault after an incident in West Haven on Sunday night.

Peter Marone, 45, of 4 Quince St., was arrested early Monday and charged with home invasion, second-degree assault, third-degree assault and second-degree threatening, according to West Haven Police Sgt. Dave Tommaro.

Tommaro said police were dispatched to a residence on Main Street in West Haven on Sunday about 8:30 p.m. for a reported home invasion.

A woman said her ex-boyfriend, Marone, had broken into her apartment and assaulted her and her friend, Tommaro said. Marone struck the man in the head several times with a lamp. Marone fled before police arrived, but he was taken into custody a short time later. The injured man was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Marone was arraigned in Milford Superior Court on Monday. His bond was set for $100,000 cash only and he is due back in court on Oct. 28. As of Monday afternoon, Marone had not posted his bond.
