DARIEN, Conn. -- A Stamford resident reported that he was headbutted by a man in Darien who was walking in the road with a small child on a bike, according to police.

Police responded to Rings End Road on Friday, April 14 at around 5:47 p.m. on a report of an assault. A 30-year-old Stamford man said he had been driving on Rings End Road when he saw a white man walking in the roadway with a small child on a bike. The driver went over the double yellow line to avoid hitting the pedestrians. At this point the man in the road started cursing at him, causing the Stamford man to stop his car and get out.

The two exchanged words, and the Stamford man said that the other man headbutted him and pushed him several times, according to police.

The man was described as a white male, approximately 5 foot 10 inches with brown hair and wearing a blue shirt. Police immediately checked the area but did not find anyone matching that description. The Stamford man did not have any visible injuries, police said.

Officers canvassed the area for several subsequent days, but were unable to find anyone matching the description. They tried several times to get in contact with the complainant, and when they finally followed up with him on April 24, he told police that he didn't want to pursue the matter any further. The investigation was then suspended.
