Two Men Involved in Danbury Stabbing Charged in Mall Fight
Danbury Police have finally charged two men that were involved in a Black Friday fight at the Danbury Fair Mall.
Danbury Police have officially charged Nykeem Hawkins and Kenaas Council with second degree breach of peace for an incident that happened at the Danbury Fair Mall on Black Friday. Police also are reporting that during the altercation, an object that looked like a hand gun was seen falling from one of the participants in the melee.
The fight took place in a busy area of the mall during one of the busiest shopping days at the mall. Shoppers and families were all doing their thing and people were in line to see Santa when the fight broke out.
Ironically, the two men were also charged in connection with a fatal stabbing that took place back in 2020 at the Danbury skate park.
According to CT Post and Danbury Police, both Hawkins and Council were involved in another fight at the Danbury Skate Park some two years ago that resulted in the death of a 21 year old.
Both Council and Hawkins were arrested for that incident and charged with conspiracy to commit first degree manslaughter, second degree assault, conspiracy to commit first and second degree assault, and second degree breach of peace.
According to Danbury Police, the skate park altercation and the fights that resulted since apparently was the result of an ongoing feud between two rival Danbury groups, YDC, and ATC, who have been involved in various incidents over the last 3 years.
Police are not certain that the Black Friday 2021 fight at the mall had anything to do with the two groups ongoing feud.
Hawkins is scheduled to be arraigned in connection with the Mall fight on March 10 and Council will be arraigned on March 30.
