Two friends were in a physical confrontation at Darien Railroad Station recently, but when police arrived, they agreed to stop, and neither wanted to press charges, police said.

Darien police gave this account of the matter, which did not result in any arrests:

Police became aware of the incident at about 6:15 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25. The two men were on the New Haven-bound side of the station, the part closest to Darien Social, from which one of the men had been asked to leave.

One of the men, 20 years old, from Darien, wanted to get his friend on a train home; the other, 24, from Stamford, wanted to go back to the bar/restaurant at 10 Center St. and talk to the manager.

At least one of the men was an employee, and one of the men appeared intoxicated — exactly which was which was unclear in the police report, a department spokesman said.

Neither man wanted to press charges — which would likely have been breach of peace or disorderly conduct — and they appeared to be headed safely home without further physical confrontation, so police didn’t make any arrests.
