Bridgeport Resident Punches Strangers on Street: Police

Bridgeport Police Department

Robert Gonzalez is accused of punching a 22-year-old man and woman on the street in Bridgeport early Sunday morning.

A Bridgeport man is facing assault charges after allegedly punching a man and woman on the street early Sunday morning, police said.

The two victims, both 22 years old, told police that a man was yelling derogatory comments at them from a van near East Main and Jane streets. It happened around 2 a.m. Sunday, according to police.

The driver, identified as 26-year-old Robert Gonzalez, reportedly got out of the van when the woman asked why he was yelling and punched the male victim, police said.

The woman tried to intervene, at which point Gonzalez allegedly told her his “fists [were] bisexual” and punched her too, according to police.

Gonzalez was charged with two counts of third-degree assault. He’s being held on a $5,000 bond.
