A second man was arrested in connection to the fight reported at Five Guys Burgers and Fries on Sept. 22, police said.

Hector Fernandez, 27, of Bridgeport was charged Friday with first-degree criminal trespass, breach of peace, and third-degree assault.

According to police, Hernandez and his stepbrother, Julian Mercedes (who was arrested the day of the incident) were arguing about a laptop at the restaurant when the fight became physical.

Police believe a third brother, an employee at the burger joint, was on scene and tried to break up the fight.

Fernandez, who was initially held on a $10,000 bond, is next due in court on Nov. 14.


Police have arrested a second suspect connected to the pawning of stolen items from a Fairfield home.

Christopher DeCarvalho, 32, of Shelton, was charged last week with third-degree larceny, two counts of sixth-degree larceny, and two counts of conspiracy after he allegedly helped Arlene Gasper steal and pawn items from her mother's home on Brookfield Avenue, police said.

Between Gasper and DeCarvalho, a diamond ring ($5,500), a laptop and case ($550), Bose iPod adapter ($100), and a Mickey Mantle baseball card ($350) were stolen and pawned while Gasper was under house arrest at the residence, according to the report.

Police recovered most of the items from pawnshops in Bridgeport after the thefts were initially reported over the summer.

DeCarvalho was released on a promise to appear in court on Oct. 17.
