Police late Thursday afternoon arrested a 47-year-old New Canaan woman and charged her with second-degree threatening.

At about 3:58 p.m., officers were dispatched to a Millport Avenue home regarding a dispute between the woman and another occupant of the residence, according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police charged her with second-degree threatening as well as second-degree reckless endangerment, conspiracy and disorderly conduct.

Under state law, a person is guilty of second-degree threatening if he or she “intentionally places or attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious physical injury,” among other reasons.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether or how the woman is related to the victim, with whom she conspired or what physical danger existed. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter. 

The woman was released on $2,000 bond and scheduled to appear the next day in state Superior Court.
