New Canaan Man, Woman Arrested in Domestic Incident


Police late Sunday arrested a New Canaan man, 47, and woman, 46, involved in a domestic incident.

At about 10:57 p.m. on Sept. 24, officers were dispatched to a Lakeview Avenue home on a report of dispute that involved both individuals. Following an investigation, police brought the misdemeanor charges.

It’s unclear what happened, whether a third person was involved as a victim or what were the extent of that injuries. Police declined to provide details, calling it a domestic matter.

A person is guilty of third-degree assault, according to state law, when “with intent to cause physical injury to another person, he causes such injury to such person or to a third person” or “recklessly causes serious physical injury to another person or “with criminal negligence, he causes physical injury to another person by means of a deadly weapon, a dangerous instrument or an electronic defense weapon,” among other reasons.

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