Brian Towles of Stamford, 28, was arrested on July 1 by warrant after police located him in his residence. He was charged with Assault 1, Possession of a Dangerous Weapon and Reckless Endangerment.

“This brazen daylight assault in the newly remodeled park was not a random attack,” Stamford Police said in a release. “The Stamford Police Dept has increased its patrols and visibility in the area. The incident should not alarm or deter anyone from enjoying the amenities and thriving downtown atmosphere.”

Here in Greenwich, Mr. Flores has a history of arrests including charges for Larceny 6 and Improper Use of License pending from an incident on Aug 11, 2020.

In Stamford, charges of Assault 3, Breach of Peace 2, Threatening 2 and Violation of Protective Order are pending from an incident back on August 5, 2020.

Also, there are also Disorderly Conduct charges from Stamford Police for incidents stemming back to May 2020 from April 2020.
