#Norwalk CT– On September 10, 2022, at 9:49pm, officers working the Oyster Festival were notified of a fight between juveniles near the Kids Cove. Officers responded to the area and broke up two separate fights. While escorting one of the juveniles that had been fighting out to Seaview Avenue, an officer was attacked by (2) males. One male jumped on the officer, while the second male repeatedly punched the officer in the head. As additional officers ran to assist, one male suspect fled into the crowd. The other male, who was identified as Ezekiel Syphrette, continued his assault on the officer, tearing the officer’s shirt in the process. The officer was able to bring Syphrette to the ground with the assistance of other officers. While taking Syphrette to the ground the officer’s head struck an entry gate.
