A 72-year-old Darien man was arrested after he swung at someone else in a domestic incident, police said, adding that the victim was able to block the blow.
The man also tried to stop the victim from calling police, the police announcement said.
Darien police gave this further account of the matter, including accusations not proven in court:
Police were called to a home in town at 5:02 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 7. They were told the man tried to get into the victim’s room to hurt the victim.
The man swung his fist at the victim’s head, but the victim blocked the blow with an arm.
The suspect was taken to Stamford Hospital “due to his condition,” but police didn’t provide any description of that condition.
The man was arrested the next day on a warrant charging him with disorderly conduct and interfering with an emergency call, both misdemeanors. He was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court the day after that, and his next appearance is scheduled for Dec. 16.
