Police on Saturday arrested an 18-year-old Kimberly Place man and charged him with second-degree threatening.

At about 10:59 a.m. on Nov. 5, officers received a complaint from a victim regarding harassing phone calls from the teen, according to a police report.

Police charged him following an investigation, it said.

It isn’t clear how what the teen said, what is his relationship with the victim, how many phone calls were made or when, or how what was said on those calls triggered the misdemeanor charge. Police withheld further information, classifying the incident as a domestic matter.

Under Connecticut state law, second-degree threatening occurs when a person:

  1. By physical threat, intentionally places or attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious physical injury; or
  2. threatens to commit any crime of violence with the intent to terrorize another, to cause evacuation of a building, place of assembly, or facility of public transportation, or otherwise to cause serious public inconvenience; or
  3. threatens to commit such crime in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror or inconvenience.

The town resident arrested here was released on $250 bond and scheduled to appear Monday in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
