New Canaan Man, 42, Charged with Disorderly Conduct and Assault

Police on Tuesday night arrested a 42-year-old Seminary Street man and charged him with disorderly conduct and third-degree assault on an elderly person.

At about 6:55 p.m. on July 10, officers were dispatched to an East Avenue residence on a report of a dispute between two residents, police said.

Following an investigation, he was charged with the misdemeanor offenses, according to a police report.

Under state law, a person is guilty of disorderly conduct when, with intent to cause inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening behavior; or by offensive or disorderly conduct, annoys or interferes with another person, among other reasons.

According to state law, a person is guilty of assault on an elderly person if the victim “has attained at least sixty years of age.”

Police withheld further information on this incident, classifying it as a domestic matter.

The arrested man was released after promising to appear the next day in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
