West Road Man, 27, Charged with 2nd-Degree Threatening


Police on Tuesday afternoon arrested a 27-year-old New Canaan man by warrant and charged him with second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct. 

At about 7:01 p.m. on Aug. 16, officers received a complaint regarding a dispute between the man and another resident of a West Road home, according to a police report.

Following the complaint, police launched an investigation and obtained an arrest warrant, the report said.

The man turned himself in to police and he was arrested at about 2:15 p.m. on Aug. 23.

It’s not clear in what way the man is accused of threatening the victim or whether the dispute turned physical.

Under state law, a person is guilty of second-degree threatening if he or she “by physical threat … intentionally places or attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious physical injury,” or “such person threatens to commit any crime of violence with the intent to terrorize another person,” among other reasons.

Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.

The man was released on $5,000 bond and scheduled to appear Wednesday in state Superior Court.
