New Canaan Woman, 39, Charged with Violation of Protective Order


Police on Sunday night arrested a 39-year-old New Canaan woman and charged her with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and violation of a protective order.

At about 7:29 p.m. on June 19, officers were dispatched to a Jelliff Mill Road home regarding a dispute between the woman and another person there, according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police took her into custody on the criminal charges, the report said. The woman had violated an existing protective order during the incident, it said. 

It wasn’t clear how long the protective order has been in place, why it was put in place or how the woman is related to the victim. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.

Police transported the woman to headquarters and held her on $20,000 bond, scheduling her to appear the next day in state Superior Court.

According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, the same woman had pleaded guilty in 2013 to a state police charge of second-degree reach of peace/threatening, receiving six months of jail, execution suspended.

In August 2019, New Canaan Police arrested the woman and charged her with strangulation, third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, records show. In April 2022, Norwalk Police charged her with third-degree assault.
