Cops: Wilton man assaulted court-protected party
NORWALK — A Wilton man assaulted a city homeowner and kicked in their screen door during a late-night incident in December, according to police.
Gregory Goldstein, 21, showed up at a Donna Drive home that he is court-ordered to stay away from around 1 a.m. on Dec. 1, police said.
The victim told police Goldstein had kicked in a door during the ensuing argument, and later suffered a cut lip and a lump on the head after Goldstein shoved them into a wall.
The victim did not tell officers what the argument was about.
Goldstein had an active protective order barring him from making contact with the victim, stemming from a September 2018 incident in which Goldstein allegedly pulled a gun on a group of people and then later barricaded himself inside a Norwalk home.
Investigators were unable to track down Goldstein, but a warrant was granted for his arrest.
When police learned on Friday that Goldstein was staying at a home in Bridgeport, he was arrested around 8 a.m. that day and was brought to Norwalk.
Goldstein, of Church Street in Wilton, was charged with third-degree assault, third-degree criminal mischief, violation of a protective order and disorderly conduct. He was held on $100,000 bond and given a court date of Jan. 13.
