Woman Arrested in Assault on Greenwich Officer

GREENWICH, Conn. – A 49-year-old Armonk, N.Y., woman was arrested on charges of assaulting a police officer who was investigating a domestic violence incident Saturday.

A next-door neighbor reported a possible domestic incident between a man and the woman at the apartment Saturday night. The woman told police nothing was wrong and wouldn’t let officers into her apartment to investigate. As officers walked into the apartment, she lunged at the back of an officer and grabbed his radio cord, police said. She was brought to the floor and restrained. During the struggle, the officer suffered a cut to his left ring finger.

The woman was arrested on charges of interfering with an officer and assault of a public safety officer. She was held on $1,000 bond and is due in court Jan. 3.

Also from the Greenwich Police Department:

• A 14-year-old girl was arrested on a charge of stealing sweaters from Lacoste on Greenwich Avenue, police said.

The teen was found in J. Crew and escorted back to Lacoste where a store employee told police the teen took two red sweaters and one pink sweater in the fitting room, then left the fitting room with only two of the sweaters. The girl was found with the red sweater. She then handed the officer two more sweaters she had stolen from Vineyard Vines and makeup from Sephora. The total value of the items was $438.49.

After being escorted to police headquarters, the teen told police that a group of friends decided to exchange Christmas gifts and told her they had already bought her gifts. The girl did not have money to buy them gifts and stole the items to give them to her friends, she told police.

She was charged with larceny and is due in court Jan. 3.

• Genis Jose Contreras, 24, of 460 Willett Ave. Apt. A, Port Chester, N.Y., was arrested when he turned himself in on a warrant for criminal violation of a protective order Saturday. He was held on $10,000 bond and was due in court Monday.

• A 16-year-old was arrested in Greenwich after police found an outstanding arrest warrant out of Valhalla, N.Y., for the teen. The warrant stemmed from a theft Aug. 14. He was charged with larceny and conspiracy to commit larceny. He was taken to Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center.
