Police on Thursday arrested a 31-year-old Lost District Drive man by warrant and charged him with first-degree unlawful restraint, a felony offense.

The arrest follows an investigation stemming from a domestic incident in February that was reported to authorities Oct. 8, according to a police report. 

Police withheld details of the incident, saying it’s a domestic matter. Under state law, “A person is guilty of unlawful restraint in the first degree when he restrains another person under circumstances which expose such other person to a substantial risk of physical injury.”

Police additionally charged the man with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct. 

According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, UConn Police on Oct. 2 arrested the man and charged him with second-degree stalking, second-degree harassment and second-degree breach of peace. He has not yet pleaded to the misdemeanor charges, the records show.

New Canaan Police on Thursday were notified by UConn Police that they had the man in custody on the active warrant. He was processed at New Canaan Police headquarters. 

Police released the man on $50,000 bond and scheduled him to appear Friday in state Superior Court.
