Norwalk – Assault Case Update
Authorities have released additional details regarding last Sunday’s incident in Norwalk that resulted in a fatality.
Two individuals got into a fight at the Webster Street Municipal Parking Lot on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive. A person died in the altercation, while 57-year-old Ricky Hickman was subsequently arrested by officers. He appeared in court Monday afternoon to face charges of criminal trespass and second-degree assault. Officials have yet to disclose the identity of the victim pending notification of family members. They also described some of the circumstances that led to the assault, stating Hickman had been arrested several times in the past and was previously barred from approaching the scene of this recent crime. More updates will be released as new info becomes available.
Reviewing a suspect’s history can frequently help authorities paint a clearer picture of events that precede a crime. While people cannot be judged by their history alone, the fact remains that reckless or negligent behavior can and will continue to hurt or kill people, so culprits should be made liable for their actions. In some cases, victims can file their own claims against these suspects, and legal experts can them understand the ramifications of this process.
