Capt. Richard Conklin said Hernandez-Alvarez was involved in a “large fight” at the Riviera Maya restaurant and bar, 20 Summer St., on June 13. During the fight, Hernandez-Alvarez allegedly knocked out a 27-year-old man with a blow to the head, leaving him with a brain bleed, Conklin said.
Conklin said Hernandez-Alvarez fled the scene before police arrived.
Surveillance footage from restaurants in the area, as well as a nearby parking garage, helped police identify a profile for the suspect in the attack, Conklin said.
On Sept. 19, an officer on patrol recognized a man fitting the description of the suspect in downtown Stamford. The man identified himself as Hernandez-Alvarez and agreed to a later interview with investigators. During the interview, Hernandez-Alvarez confessed to be involved in the June 13 melee, Conklin said.aside">
