MILFORD — Three more people — all young adults — have been charged in connection with a brawl that broke out on Walnut Beach on Memorial Day.

Milford police identified the latest people charged as Alexander Mitchell, 20, of Bethany, Jasmin Bello, 18, of Stratford, and Jacob Calderon-Perez, 18, of Trumbull.

Police charged Mitchell with second-degree breach of peace. Bello was charged with second-degree breach of peace and third-degree assault, while Calderon-Perez was charged with sixth-degree larceny.

Police said Calderon-Perez and Bello were both arrested at their homes on Saturday. Mitchell turned himself in to Milford police on Monday.

Police said “numerous physical fights” broke out on the beach around 6:30 p.m. on May 30. Responding officers were overwhelmed by the “large, unruly crowd,” and were assaulted during the fight, police said.

Police said two officers had body-worn cameras pulled off of their uniforms during the scuffle.

In response to the fight, Milford police said they would have an increased presence at beaches this summer.

Police had previously announced that three people, all of them minors, had been charged in connection with the incident. The names of those people, and the charges against them, were not disclosed as is common in juvenile cases.

Milford police said at the time they had warrants pending for the arrests of two more juveniles and five adults.
