Man, 23, Charged with Violating Criminal Protective Order


Police before dawn Monday arrested a 23-year-old man and charged him with four counts of criminal violation of a standing criminal protective order.

The arrest follows from a complaint made in May 2019, according to a police report. A victim of the Bethany man indicated at the time that he’d violated a protective order and provided evidence to support the claim, the report said.

Following an investigation, police obtained a warrant to arrest the man on the felony charge.

Police at about 2:20 a.m. on Jan. 18 traveled to Monroe to take custody of the man. He was transported to New Canaan headquarters and held on $100,000 bond ahead of his Jan. 19 court date, police said.

It’s unclear what the protective order requires, how long it’s been in place, why it was issued, how the man violated it or whether or how he’s related to the victim.

Police withheld details, saying it was a domestic matter.
