Police on Friday arrested a 67-year-old New Canaan man by warrant and charged him with violation of a protective order.

At about 6 p.m. on March 25, police received a complaint from an victim listed as the protected party in the order, officials said.

The victim provided evidence that the Richmond Hill Road man was actively violating it, according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police obtained a warrant for his arrest.

It’s unclear whether or how he’s related to the victim, why or when the protective order was put into place or what it stipulates. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.
