New Canaan Man and Woman Charged with Assault


Police late Sunday arrested a New Canaan man and woman and charged them with assault following domestic disputes with others residing at the same home.

At about 9:53 p.m., officers were dispatched to a Wascussue Court house on a complaint of a domestic dispute between a 48-year-old man and another occupant of the home, according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police charged the man with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct.

About one hour later, at 10:45 p.m., officers were dispatched to the same home regarding a dispute between a woman who lives there, 50, and another occupant of the home. She was charged with third-degree assault of an elderly, blind, disabled or pregnant person or a person with intellectual disability, as well as disorderly conduct.

It’s unclear how the arrested man and woman are related (they have the same last name), whether the two incidents involved the same victim, whether or how that individual is related to the arrested people, what the dispute involved, how it turned physical and what were the extent of injuries, if any. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.

The man and woman each were released after promising to appear Monday in state Superior Court.
