A 60-year-old Darien man was issued a misdemeanor summons on charges of disorderly conduct and third-degree assault after striking someone at his home on Nearwater Lane, police said.
Police described what happened with this account, which includes accusations not proven in court:
Some time before police were called at 7:27 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 10, the man came home and became upset. Police didn’t say how, or what led to the man striking at least one other person.
One person in the home told police that he or she was struck by the 60-year-old and that a second person in the house was also struck. But both the 60-year-old and the second person said that only the second person was struck. The second person said he or she hadn’t seen the 60-year-old have any physical contact with the first person.
Police did not say whether or not anyone had any marks on them, whether an ambulance was called, whether anyone went to a hospital or whether anyone was injured in any serious way.
The 60-year-old was issued a misdemeanor summons to appear Jan. 13 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
Editor’s note: Darienite doesn’t publish the names of people charged in cases of domestic violence that police descriptions indicate are relatively minor. By a state statute, names and other information about victims are withheld from the public, including whether a victim is male or female, adult or child. All public descriptions of what took place therefore look ridiculous.
