Arrests following Two Domestic Violence Incidents in New Canaan


Police made two arrests Friday following separate domestic incidents:

A Lambert Road woman at 6:26 a.m. reported that an argument with her husband had turned physical.

Arriving, police found her to have abrasions on her elbow and she was complaining of pain in her jaw and back, according to a police report. The woman said her husband had pushed her against a wall and tried to choke her.

He faces third-degree assault and disorderly conduct charges.

He was released on $5,000 bond and scheduled to appear Nov. 21 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.


A Weed Street man, drunk, attempted to punch his father Friday evening following a dispute at the family’s home, police said. Because the son was intoxicated, he missed, according to a police report.

Notified of the incident at 7:15 p.m., police arrested him for disorderly conduct. He was released after promising to appear Nov. 24 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
