A 72-year-old New Canaan man was charged with assault in the third degree, interfering with a 911 call and disorderly conduct following a domestic incident at his home on Thursday, Nov. 8.
According to police, officers received a 911 call from the man’s residence at 8:53 p.m. where the dispatcher heard a female voice in the background yelling for help because the phone was hung up. While responding to the residence, police received two more 911 hang-up calls from the residence.
Upon arrival, officers determined the man had been arguing with his wife. What started as a verbal argument turned physical, and the man allegedly pushed his wife to the ground twice, causing her to hit her head. She refused medical treatment, and didn’t have any visible injuries, police said.
The man posted a $5,000 bond and was due in court Nov. 9.
On Friday, Nov. 9 a 49-year-old woman reported items were stolen from her car which was parked on Millport Avenue. The theft happened overnight, the woman said. Missing items included a cell phone car charger and a Tinkerbell floor mat.
The car was unlocked, and the woman reported it was not damaged either.
