Harassment Charge for New Canaan Man, 67


Police on Saturday afternoon arrested a 67-year-old Richmond Hill Road man by warrant and charged him with second-degree harassment.

The same man had been arrested March 21 by New Canaan Police and charged with disorderly conduct.

At about 6 p.m. on March 25, police received a complaint from a victim with an active protective order, officials said.

The victim provided evidence that the man was actively violating that order, according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police brought the new misdemeanor charge.

It’s not clear what the man said to the victim or by what means of communication. Police withheld details, saying it was a domestic matter.

Under state law, a person is guilty of second-degree harassment if he or she “uses indecent or obscene language” or communicates with a person “with intent to harass, annoy or alarm another person,” among other reasons.

Police released the man on $25,000 bond and scheduled him to appear Monday in state Superior Court.
