A 51-year-old man living in Norwalk texted a person in Darien in violation of a restraining order on three occasions, Darien police said.

Police gave this account of the matter, including accusations not proven in court:

Police spoke with the man “and determined he did make contact with the victim, and that this was a violation of the restraining order,” police said in an announcement.

The announcement said the matter was considered a “domestic incident,” indicating the victim was someone who was or had been close to him, possibly someone who had lived in the same household.

Officers arrested him on Jan. 31 on a charge of violating a restraining order, a felony. He was held on a $50,000 bond and appeared in state Superior Court in Stamford the next day.

His bond later was reduced to $10,000, and he was released after posting it. He is next due in court on March 24.

Police didn’t give any description of what was said in the texts, but no other charges were brought against the man, such as threatening or harassment.
