The New London Police Department has made two additional arrests in connection with a Sept. 22 fight at the Wild Style Motorcycle Club.
Deputy Chief Peter Reichard said brothers Donte Marin, 21, and Robert Marin, 22, both of 40 Crystal Ave., turned themselves in early this morning at police headquarters after speaking with a detective about the incident. Both have been charged with first-degree assult and breach of peace and will make an initial court appearance at the G.A. 10 Court.
Police have also arrested the club's president, 34-year-old Juan Roman of 241 Elm Street, and his brother and club vice president, 31-year-old Juan Baptista-Roman of 5 Lorenzo Court in Waterford. They have been charged with first-degree assault and carrying a dangerous weapon.
The fight was reported at 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 22 and resulted in life-threatening injuries to 26-year-old Anthony Swift, who was stabbed several times in the abdomen. He was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for emergency surgery and later recovered.
Police determined that the fight broke out inside the motorcycle club, which was located on the lower level of 130 Bank Street with frontage on South Water Street. Also injured were Jairo Perez, 28, of Guilford, who suffered several head and facial injuries after being struck by a large wooden object; Henry Albino, 31, of New London, who had lacerations to his face and ear; and Miguel Albino, 33, of New London, who suffered a leg injury while trying to run from the site. All were treated and released at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital.
The city's zoning enforcement officer later ordered the club to cease and desist operations after determining that it did not have a proper permit to run a club at the site.
