Man, 56, Charged with Violation of a Protective Order


Police last week arrested a 56-year-old Stamford man by warrant and charged him with three counts of violation of a protective order.

On July 11, police took a complaint from a victim regarding a violation of an existing protective order, officials said.

Through an investigation, officers determined that the man had violated the active order on three occasions, according to a police report. 

Police obtained a warrant and took the man into custody at his home on July 20, the report said.

It isn’t clear why the order had been issued, whether the man is related to the victim or in what way or ways he violated the order. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter that involves minors.

The man was released on $40,000 bond and scheduled to appear July 21 in state Superior Court. 

The same man had been arrested by New Canaan Police in April and charged with disorderly conduct, Connecticut Judicial Branch records show.
