A 19-year-old woman told Darien police that she thought a protective order prohibiting her from being at the home of the victim didn’t apply when the victim moved to a new residence, according to police.

It does, and the woman was arrested.

At 2:18 p.m. on Monday, April 10, police were called to the home in the 100 block of Noroton Avenue, where the 19-year-old, a Stamford woman, told them she had been invited to the home and arrived at about 1:45 p.m., then a dispute developed, police said. Police quoted the woman saying the resident had “thrown her out of the house.”

The Stamford woman was charged with violating the protective order and initially held her on $10,000 bond. A state bail commissioner later removed the bond and released the woman shortly after 10:30 p.m. on a promise to appear the next day in state Superior Court in Stamford.

Darien police said state law now prohibits them from releasing any information on victims in domestic violence cases.
