September 19, 2018

STAMFORD — Police say a city man has been arrested for pulling a knife on a bouncer while he was escorted out of a South End club last month.

Inmer Martinez-Perez, 24, of Woodland Avenue, has been charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, carrying two dangerous weapons, breach of peace and criminal mischief.

Sgt. Ryan McAllister said Martinez-Perez pulled out a knife at the Peruvian Billiard Club on Atlantic Street on Aug. 19.

McAllister said Martinez-Perez pulled out a second knife and lunged at one of the bouncers as he was being escorted out of the club. McAllister said both knives were about 13 to 14 inches long. McAllister said the bouncer suffered a small puncture wound on his hand.

Security at the club tackled Martinez-Perez and held him until police arrived. Surveillance video showed Martinez-Perez severely lacerated one of his own hands when he was taken to the ground, McAllister said.

Martinez-Perez was held in lieu of a $75,000 court appearance bond.
