WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — The West Haven Police Department has arrested a father and son after they allegedly assaulted two men in the Armstrong Building on 7 Saw Mill Road on Wednesday.

At approximately 12:04 p.m., officers responded to the Armstrong Building for what was originally reported as an irate man with a gun barricaded in the building. Officials say it was later determined that an assault took place inside of the building with one suspect armed with a handgun.

Officers shut down the area and rerouted both pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic for safety. The male suspect was removed from the building safely by police negotiators and the Special Response Team.

One victim suffered serious injuries and the other victim suffered minor injuries, according to West Haven Police.

Mark J. Fabrizi was arrested and charged with assault with a firearm, unlawful restraint, assault in the third degree, two counts of threatening, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.
