Police: Derby man arrested for assault in Newtown

May 9, 2019

NEWTOWN — A Derby man was charged with assault following an on-the-job dispute in Sandy Hook last week.

William C. Conroy-Delarosa, 20, was arrested last Thursday after Newtown police responded to Curtis Packaging Corporation on Berkshire Road around 6 a.m. for a reported assault.

Police determined that Conroy-Delarosa, a temporary employee, had assaulted another employee. Lt. Aaron Bahamonde said it was just a “minor dispute.”

The victim was taken to the hospital for injuries, but Conroy-Delarosa fled the scene by the time police arrived.

Newtown police later located him at his Derby residence and took him back to headquarters, where he was processed and charged with second-degree assault — a class D felony.

Conroy-Delarosa was held on $5,000 bond and transported to Danbury Superior Court for arraignment.

He pleaded not guilty and has a pretrial hearing scheduled for May 30.
