Man accused in Norwich assault feeling the heat of burned bridges in court

NORWICH – An Oxford man accused of assault and mischief appeared in Supreme Court Monday after the mother of his children tried to withdraw the $500 bail she originally posted for his release.

Robert W. Gallo Jr., 26, was arrested Dec. 6 by the Norwich Police Department for allegedly assaulting a female victim and causing $3,000 in damages to the victim’s car.



The incident allegedly took place at 2:45 a.m. Dec. 6 along Fair Street in the City of Norwich. A grand jury indicted Gallo in January for second degree mischief, a Class D felony, and third degree misdemeanor assault. Gallo has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Gallo’s ex-live-in girlfriend and mother of his children, Cassandra Barrows, who is not the victim in the incident, wrote Supreme Court Justice Kevin M. Dowd a letter requesting a bail hearing in Gallo’s case so she could withdraw the $500 bail she posted for his release.
