Police: New Canaan Man, 24, Charged After Violating Restraining Order [CORRECTED]


Police on Monday afternoon arrested a 24-year-old New Canaan man by warrant and charged him with violation of a standing criminal protective order and criminal violation of a restraining order.

On June 23, 2020, police took a report regarding a violation of a current restraining order, which requires the man to not have any contact with the protected party, officials said.

The man violated that condition, according to a police report.

He surrendered himself on the two felony charges at about 1:45 p.m. on Aug. 9. 

The resident has been arrested in the past on a range of offenses, according to Connecticut Judicial Branch records.

In January 2020, Wilton Police arrested the man and charged with interfering with an officer and using a motor vehicle without permission (he has pleaded not guilty). In April 2020, New Canaan Police charged him with two counts of interfering as well as disorderly conduct and fourth-degree criminal mischief (he pleaded not guilty). In May 2020, he was arrested three times—once by Fairfield Police (for criminal violation of a restraining order, a charge to which he has not yet pleaded) and twice by New Canaan Police, who brought two separate charges of criminal violation of a restraining order as well as a charge of first-degree violation of conditions of release (he has pleaded not guilty to those charges).

It’s unclear what prompted authorities to put the restraining and criminal protective orders in place, whether or how the man is related to the protected party or what the conditions of the orders are. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.

On the most recent charges, police released the man on $1,500 bond and scheduled him to appear Aug. 10 in state Superior Court.
