A 19-year-old Darien man was arrested again in another domestic incident at his home on Allen O’Neill Drive, Darien police said. This time, his mother was also arrested.
Last fall, he and his sister had been charged after the two got into a dispute over a minor matter, and the sister called police. This time, the man and his mother were each charged after the mother called police.
The mother, 41, told police that Luis Sanchez had been forcibly entering bedrooms and stealing things from her and another family member who lives in the home.
That action by Sanchez would be a violation of a standing protective order that came from the previous domestic incident.
Just before calling police, the mother asked Sanchez to leave the home, but he refused. When she said she would call police, Sanchez tried to take her phone, but she was able to make the call anyway.
She also said Sanchez threw a perfume bottle at her, striking her in the head. Sanchez admitted to all of those details, but said his mother grabbed him by the neck during his struggle with her. She admitted she did that when they were struggling over the phone.
Both mother and son were arrested. The mother was charged with third-degree strangulation and released on a $500 bond. She was told to appear at state Superior Court in Stamford the next day.
Sanchez was charged with disorderly conduct, interfering with an emergency call and criminal violation of a protective order. Police also found that four warrants had been issued for his arrest because he hadn’t appeared in court at some point for previous charges.
(When he was arrested last November in the previous domestic incident at the house, police also found he hadn’t appeared in court at some point to answer to even earlier charges.)
Sanchez’s bond was set at a total of $50,000, which he was unable to post.
