HAMDEN – A Hamden man is facing charges stemming from a dispute between neighbors that happened last summer.

Marquise Edwards

On July 16, 2017 Hamden Police responded to a Helen Street residence on the report of an assault, according to spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith.

Police had responded the the home earlier on the report of a dispute, Smith said. A man who lived on the first floor of the house, identified as Daren Sarcione, was upset because the second-floor tenants were having a party and their guests were “slamming” the front door, Smith said.

“Sarcione subsequently punched the glass located inside of the front door, shattering it,” Smith said. “Particles of glass struck the female second floor resident.”

Sarcione was arrested after that incident, Smith said. He was charged with disorderly conduct.

But a short time later, Marquise Edwards, 41, of 137 Circular Avenue, along with two others, “forced their way into Sarcione’s residence and assaulted him,” Smith said.

Sarcione suffered back, head and wrist injuries, Smith said.

Officer Edward Stoor conducted an investigation, which led to the application of an arrest warrant for Marquise Edwards, Smith said.

On Jan. 27, Hamden Police arrested Edwards on a warrant charging second-degree burglary, third-degree assault and disorderly conduct.

He was held in lieu of $35,000.00 bond and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Feb. 12.
