Harassment and Threatening Charges for Man, 52


New Canaan Police on May 20 arrested a 52-year-old New York City man and charged him with second-degree harassment and second-degree threatening.

The charges stemmed from an incident reported to police in July of 2022, officials said.

Police found there was an active arrest warrant for him while responding to a medical assist call on River Street.

It’s unclear what the man did. Under state law, a person is guilty of second-degree threatening if he or she “threatens to commit any crime of violence with the intent to terrorize another person,” among other reasons.

The man was taken into custody at NCPD headquarters. They released the man on $25,000 bond and scheduled him to appear June 3 in state Superior Court. 

Connecticut Judicial Branch records show that he has retained Stamford-based attorney Stephen J. DeLeo. He has not yet entered a plea and will be arraigned June 26 in Stamford, court records show.
