Police late Wednesday arrested a 25-year-old Norwalk man and charged him with violation of a protective order and second-degree stalking.
At about 10:35 p.m. on Sept. 22, officers were dispatched to a psychiatric hospital on Valley Road on a report of the protective order violation, according to police.
There, officers spoke to the victim and conducted an investigation, according to a police report. They determined that the man had violated an active protective order and had been stalking the victim, the report said.
Police took the man into custody and processed him at headquarters, it said.
It isn’t clear what the man’s relationship is to the victim, what led to the original protective order or how the man violated it. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.
Second-degree stalking happens when a person “knowingly engages in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to … suffer emotional distress,” among other reasons.
The man was released on $10,000 bond and scheduled to appear Thursday in state Superior Court.
