Port Chester police arrested a Greenwich man after he allegedly punched his baby’s mother in Port Chester Panera Bread at 3 p.m. Sept. 24, Police Lt. James Ladeairous said.
Police were called to the restaurant for a domestic dispute after the 26-year-old Angel Galvez, who is no longer with the 32-year-old mother of his child, allegedly went into Panera, picked up the child and started walking around the restaurant, causing a verbal argument with the mother.
The mother asked him to stop, he put the baby down and then threw two cups of tea in the mother’s face, Ladeairous said.
He then allegedly picked up the baby and punched the mother in the face. Police arrested Galvez on misdemeanor charges of third-degree attempted assault and endangering the welfare of a child. After the mother provided police with a statement, EMS transported her to Greenwich Hospital for treatment of pain in her jaw and swelling of her face.
