GREENWICH, Conn. -- A Greenwich man slapped a youth after yelling at him to get off his property, police said.

Andrew Colin Morgan, 42, of 74 Orchard St., Cos Cob, was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, police said. He posted $250 bond and was scheduled to appear in court on Friday.

Police said a minor reported that he was playing on an adjacent property to 74 Orchard St. at about 3 p.m. April 8, when a “mad woman” yelled at him, police said.

Then a man appeared and began to yell “get off my property” at the youth, police said. The man then grabbed the youth, slapped him and pushed him against a shed, police said.

The teen ran to a nearby store to ask the owner for help.
