A 46-year-old Westport man got into some kind of physical altercation in a domestic incident after refusing to leave the property of a Darien resident, police said.

Darien police gave this account of the incident, including accusations not proven in court:

At 10:58 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, police were called to a home on Elm Street after a report of the altercaton on the lawn of the home. Officers spoke with the Westport man, who said he’d just been in the altercation.

The man said he was invited to the residence by the victim. The victim told police that the man had been sending unwanted text messages and had been told not to contact the victim.

The victim also said that when the man showed up that night, he refused to leave, and that’s what led to the physical altercation with a third person. Police did not describe the physical altercation as a fight or provide any details about it. Nor did police indicate anyone was injured or even bruised in the incident.

Police described the incident as a “domestic incident,” indicating that the victim and the accused had, at some point, some kind of relationship with each other.

Police charged the man with first-degree criminal trespass and second-degree harassment, both misdemeanors. He was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford the next day. His next court date is on April 14.
