Police early Tuesday arrested a 33-year-old Bridgeport man by warrant and charged him with second-degree harassment and disorderly conduct.
On April 15, officers took a complaint from a business owner regarding harassing text messages from an employee, according to a police report.
Through an investigation, police learned that the Bridgeport man had sent the texts to his employer, the report said. He’d sent messages more than 50 times demanding money and a percentage of the business, threatening that if he wasn’t paid the business would be ruined, it said.
Police took custody of the man at Norwalk Hospital and transported him to NCPD headquarters for processing at about 5:49 a.m. Tuesday, the report said.
He was held on $35,000 bond and scheduled to appear May 10 in state Superior Court.
