New London police have arrested two brothers who lead a motorcycle club. They are suspects in a stabbing at the club.
During the early hours on Saturday, Sept 22, police responded to a report of an assault stabbing at the Wild Style Riders Motorcycle Clubhouse at 130 Bank St. and found Anthony Swift, 26, suffering from multiple wounds, according to a news release from police.
Police said Swift had been injured during a large fight.
As police were investigating, they learned that more people had been assaulted during a fight at the club, which spilled out into the parking lot, and were being treated at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital.
Police said on Friday that they have obtained arrest warrants for Jose Roman, 35, of Elm Street in New London, and Juan Baptista-Roman, 31, of Lorenzo Street in, Waterford, in connection with the assault stabbing.
Jose Roman was taken into custody and is being held on a $400,000 court-set bond. Juan Baptista-Roman turned himself in to Nee London Police headquarters at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.
Police said they investigated and determine that Jose Roman, the president of the motorcycle club, and Juan Baptista-Roman, the vice president of the club, were responsible for Swift’s injuries.
The Roman brothers have been charged with assault in the first degree and carrying a dangerous weapon. The arrest warrants each had a $400,000 bond.
The Day of New London reported last week that the city has closed the club because the group did not have the permit needed to operate a members-only club in that location.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Juan Baptista-Roman is urged to call local police.
