Men accused in assault, police chase arraigned in court

Two Bridgeport men were arraigned today after police say they assaulted a woman in Norwalk, fled in a stolen car and led officers on a chase. 

Norwalk police say they were searching for a green Toyota Rav 4 in connection with an assault early this morning when a Westport officer spotted the vehicle driven by 42-year-old Rolf Johnson heading north on I-95.

Police say when the officer tried to pull the SUV over, Johnson sped off. They say Johnson got off I-95 at exit 27 in Bridgeport and crashed into a police cruiser and a parked car.

Johnson and his passenger, 49-year-old Warren Goodman, are expected to be back in court next month.
