Two women were arrested on Saturday, Oct. 22, in connection with two unrelated domestic violence incidents, Darien police said.
Police gave these accounts, including accusations not proven in court:
At 10:54 a.m., the first incident was reported to police. In the parking lot of a business on the Post Road, police were told, a Stamford, a 35-year-old Stamford woman approached the vehicle and began yelling, although the interaction never became physical. Police called the incident a “domestic disturbance,” indicating that the parties had a close relationship with each other.
While officers were interviewing the Stamford woman, she continued yelling obscenities at both the victim and the officers. Police found that an order of protection was in place against the woman and the victim was the protected party.
The Stamford woman was arrested on charges of violating a protective order and breach of peace. She was released after paying 10% of a 1,000 bond and was scheduled to appear Oct. 24 in state Superior Court in Stamford. She is next scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 13.
The woman previously had been arrested on Sept. 4 by Stamford police and charged with second-degree assault, second-degree breach of peace, third-degree criminal mischief and failure to comply when asked to cooperate with getting her fingerprints taken. That case is still in state Superior Court in Stamford.
In the other incident, police were called to a home at 11:10 p.m. They were told that a 55-year-old woman got into an argument that turned physical. The victim showed police a cell phone video showing the woman holding a knife and grabbing at the victim’s phone.
Police charged the woman with second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct. She was later released on a $500 bond and was scheduled to appear Monday, Oct. 24 in state Superior Court in Stamford. Her next court date is Dec. 6.
