PD: Man arrested for breaking woman’s nose, jaw in North Haven assault

New Haven

A 37-year-old man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly assaulting a woman, breaking her nose and jaw, in the front yard of a North Haven home.

Police say that at around 1 a.m., officers responded to a home on Peters Lane after a witness saw a man sitting on top of a woman, punching her several times, in the front yard of the residence.

When the witness called police, the man, later identified as Scott Macri, got into his vehicle and rammed the victim’s car before driving away.

According to police, the victim suffered a broken nose, broken jaw, concussion and severe bruising to her face during the attack. She has not been identified.

Macri was later found running from his disabled car in Wallingford. Wallingford Police and Connecticut State Police assisted North Haven officers in the investigation. 

Macri was arrested and charged with assault, risk of injury to a minor, criminal mischief and breach of peace. He was held on bond.
