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.
