CLINTON, Conn. (AP) _ Police say a Connecticut man assaulted two teenagers in a home invasion, believing they knocked down a snowman he built in his yard.

Twenty-two-year-old James Knudsen of Clinton was charged with home invasion, misdemeanor assault, burglary and other crimes on Thursday.

Clinton police told The Day of New London (http://bit.ly/1fmdRoW ) that Knudsen forced his way into his neighbor’s house, swung a pool stick at the teenagers and punched

both of them in the face. The two juveniles, ages 16 and 17, had minor injuries.

Knudsen was detained on $5,000 bail and was scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Middletown Superior Court. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
