FAIRFIELD - Fairfield police say a 19-year-old man is in custody and was charged with beating his ex-girlfriend Friday.

Police say they arrested Christian Ghiorzi at his house at 4 a.m.

They say the arrest came hours after Ghiorizi's ex-girlfriend returned to her home with major injuries to her face.

According to officials, the couple had gone out with friends Thursday night and later came back to Ghiorzi's home on Pope Street. They say Ghiorzi assaulted the victim after an argument.

The 19-year-old victim was taken to Saint Vincent Medical Center in Bridgeport.

Police advise residents to contact them right away if they have been involved in cases like this.

"If you are a victim of domestic assault you should report it to the police so that we can investigate it and bring the suspects to justice," says Lt. Robert Kalamaras.
