Police on Friday night arrested a 29-year-old Newtown man and charged him with third-degree stalking, second-degree harassment and disorderly conduct.
At about 8:50 p.m. on Nov. 15, officers received a complaint regarding a domestic dispute that had occurred earlier in the day, according to a police report.
Police obtained a statement from the victim during an investigation, and then asked the man to come to headquarters to discuss what had happened, the report said.
At HQ, police charged him with the misdemeanor offenses.
It isn’t clear whether or how the man is related to the victim or what happened—police withheld details, classifying the matter as domestic.
Under state law, a person is guilty of third-degree stalking when he or she “recklessly causes another person to reasonably fear for his or her physical safety, or suffer emotional distress.”
The man was released on $1,000 bond and scheduled to appear Monday in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
