Darien police say that when they were called to a West Avenue home on Aug. 8, were told that three days before a 32-year-old woman living there had gotten into a physical altercation with another person there.

The woman was later arrested on a warrant after police had determined that the woman had injured that person’s face and destroyed some medication owned by that person.

Police did not describe the “visible injury to the victim’s face” or say whether or not the victim had received treatment for it from a hospital or doctor (or whether the injury was major or minor). By state law, police do not describe victims in public statements, so the victim’s gender or age are not public.

The arrest, on Sunday, Aug. 29 (according to police — the Connecticut Judicial Branch website says it was the next day) came after police applied for and were granted an arrest warrant.

Police went to the home and took the woman into custody on charges of second-degree reckless endangerment, third-degree criminal mischief and disorderly conduct. All three charges are misdemeanors.

She was released on a written promise to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford the next day. Her next court hearing is on Oct. 21.
