Carlos Galdamez Monzon surrendered to police Aug. 19

Milford officers have arrested a local man after another person reported an assault.

The incident took place at 5:45 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 19, in the 800 block of North Dupont Blvd., department spokesman Det. Timothy Maloney said.

The victim of the assault, who had visible injuries to the face, was sent to a local hospital for evaluation. Using social media as well as accounts from the victim and other witnesses police identified Galdamez Monzon as the suspect, Maloney said.

Officers secured an arrest warrant based on this information and Galdamez Monzon surrendered later in the evening.

He is charged with a single count of third-degree assault and was released from custody on a $500 unsecured bond.

Galdamez Monzon also was ordered to have no contact with the victim.
