A 34-year-old Darien woman was arrested Sunday after a fight with a man who received bites and scratches, police said.

Police, who were called to the scene at 7:21 p.m., didn’t say in a Monday news release where the fight took place, but said the fight resulted from an argument between the two concerning phone and text messages between the Darien woman and another person, a co-worker of hers.

Darien police gave this further information about the matter (none of the accusations are proven in court):

The fight was only between the two people. When police arrived at the scene, the man told them about the cause and said that the argument resulted in the Darien woman physically attacking him.

Police saw the scratches and bite marks he said were made by the Darien woman.

The woman told police that an altercation had taken place, but gave a different version of events. Police did not describe that version in the news release.

The Darien woman was arrested on a charge of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, and released on a promise to appear Monday, Nov. 13 in state Superior Court in Stamford.

She was released on condition that she have no contact with the victim. (Courts commonly review those police no-contact orders and frequently revise them.)

Correction: The article originally said the victim was a female and a co-worker, but it’s been pointed out to us that this is incorrect.
