Police on Wednesday morning arrested a 47-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct.

At about 8:52 a.m. on Aug. 26, officers were dispatched to a Glen Drive home on a report of a dispute between the man and another occupant of the residence, police said.

There, police conducted an investigation and brought the criminal charges as a result. 

It’s not clear how the arrested man is related to the victim, what the dispute was about, whether it turned physical or what the threats involved. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.

Under state law, a person commits second-degree threatening if he or she “places or attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious physical injury, such person threatens to commit any crime of violence with the intent to terrorize another person, or such person threatens to commit such crime of violence in reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror,” among other reasons.

Police released the man on $2,000 bond and scheduled him to appear Thursday in state Superior Court.
