On March 14th Hamden Police responded to the area of 1245 Dixwell Avenue on the report of a Breach of Peace.
Investigation revealed that a 19 year-old Hamden resident was walking southbound on Dixwell Avenue, when she was approached from behind by an individual, who was later identified as Warren Ligon. Ligon allegedly dispensed an unknown liquid onto her head. He then subsequently fled to a motor vehicle, which was operated by Shannon Mosca.
The Hamden Fire Department was summoned to render medical assistance.
