From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:
A mentor for young men in the community was charged Wednesday with savagely beating a city councilwoman because she wouldn’t return his phone calls.
Sherman Perry, 44, the founder of Men’s Community Empowerment Group, was charged with second-degree assault and first-degree reckless endangerment in connection with the assault on Feb. 22 of East Side Councilwoman Eneida Martinez.
Martinez was severely beaten in the face, head and shoulders and spent a week in Bridgeport Hospital.
… Police said Martinez and Perry had been involved in a relationship but she had stopped taking his calls. They said that on the day of the incident, Perry had gone to Martinez’s home to confront her. The two began to argue, police said, and Perry, who is 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs 280 pounds, then began punching Martinez.
