Wilton police log: parents arrested, harassment
Parents charged with breach of peace
Parents of a child were charged with breach of peace Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. following an incident with a state Department of Children and Families worker on Belden Hill Road near Wolfpit Road.
Police said they responded to a 911 call in which the caller said someone was taking their child. Police found that a supervised visit with DCF in Norwalk was cut short because of the aggressive behavior of the biological parents. The parents followed the DCF worker with their car and cut in front of her on Belden Hill Road to block her from leaving. The DCF was taking the child to a foster home. Once stopped, the mother tried to enter the DCF worker’s vehicle and reach her child.
Police charged Amanda Ravenscroft, 29, of 82B Main Street, Bethlehem, and Joe Fortunato, 31, of the same address, each with breach of peace. They were released on a promise to appear in court Nov. 6.
Speeding under suspension
A 29-year-old Stamford man was charged with traveling unreasonably fast, misuse of plates, unregistered motor vehicle, and operating a motor vehicle with a license under suspension Oct. 23 at 12:17 p.m. on Range Road near Broad Axe Lane.
Police said Devon Pearson, of 77 Columbus Place, Stamford, was released on a promise to appear in court Nov. 6.
Police said he was driving a BMW at 38 mph in a 25-mph zone northbound on Range Road when a motor vehicle stop was conducted. A check of the license plate revealed it belonged to a Nissan Maxima, which expired in 2014. It was also found his license was suspended last spring.
Improper display of plate
A 57-year-old Bridgeport man was charged with improper display of plate and failure to return license after suspension Oct. 25 at 10:13 a.m. on Danbury Road near Catalpa Road.
Police said Kevin Thompson, of 1611 Stratford Avenue, Bridgeport, was released on $495 bond with a court date of Nov. 9.
Police said a traffic stop was conducted on his black GMC truck for improper display of plate, and it was determined he was driving under suspension and had an active warrant out of Westport for failure to appear on charges of following too closely and operating under suspension.
Police charged a Washington, D.C., man with second-degree harassment and stalking on a warrant Oct. 30 after he allegedly sent unwanted emails and phone calls to his former girlfriend in Wilton.
Police said David Susskind, 25, turned himself in after learning of the warrant and was arraigned Oct. 31.
The Wilton Police Department responded to one call of domestic violence during the week of October 23 to Oct. 31.
