A 46-year-old resident of Old Kings Highway North caused minor injuries and ripped the shirt of a person in a domestic violence incident Sunday morning, Feb. 9, and was given a summons to appear in court, Darien police said.
Darien police described what happened this way, including accusations not proven in court:
After the 9:43 a.m. report to police, officers arrived at the scene and saw the woman and the victim in the back yard. The woman was holding on the victim’s sleeves, which, it seemed, had been torn.
Police separated the two and spoke to them separately. The victim said the woman had received a text message, and that started an argument, which turned physical, causing the minor injuries and ripped shirt sleeves.
The police announcement did not mention an ambulance being called or a hospital visit.
The woman was issued a misdemeanor summons charging her with disorderly conduct. She was scheduled to appear the next day, Monday, Feb. 10, in state Superior Court in Stamford.
Editor’s note: By state law, police in Connecticut are barred from making public information that might identify a victim in a domestic violence incident, including name, age, gender, address and even the address of the incident. Police do give out the name of the person charged, which Darienite.com doesn’t report in less serious cases (which are most of them).
