NORWALK — Police arrested a teenager Monday after he allegedly shattered his grandmother’s car window and elbowed an officer.

The 17-year-old boy, who lives on the first block of Summit Street, was charged with resisting arrest, criminal damaging, disrupting public service, juvenile delinquency, assault on a police officer and probation violation.

At about 4 p.m., police responded to a home in the first block of Ontario Street after the boy’s grandmother reported he allegedly broke her car window, according to a Norwalk police report.

She said her grandson missed the bus but refused to wait for her to pick him up from school. When she found him an hour later, he allegedly refused to tell her where he was.

The boy allegedly became enraged and started to strike the passenger window with his elbow until it shattered, the report states. The grandmother claimed the boy then hung up the phone when she tried to call for a police officer.

When police went to take the boy into custody, he allegedly started to pull away and elbowed a police officer in the chest, according to the report. The officers allegedly had to use force to pin him against the vehicle until they could get him inside their police cruiser. 

The boy was taken to the Seneca County Youth Center to be held until his court date in the Huron County Juvenile Court.
