A local 18-year-old faces an assault charge in connection with an incident last month.

John Mendillo, of Bauer Place Extension, was charged Monday with third-degree assault.

A complaint was filed in July, according to police, alleging Mendillo had assaulted another person during a gathering at a local residence.

Mendillo turned himself in to police around Monday after learning there was a warrant for his arrest.

He posted a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear Sept. 3 at state Superior Court in Norwalk.
