Police on Friday morning charged a 54-year-old New Canaan man with third-degree assault, third-degree strangulation, third-degree larceny, interfering with an emergency call and disorderly conduct.

At about 9:26 a.m. on July 29, officers were dispatched to an Alan Lane residence regarding a domestic dispute between the man and another person there, according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police brought the criminal charges, the report said. It wasn’t clear whether or how the man was related to the victim, what were the extent of the victim’s injuries or what the larceny charge involved.
