GREENWICH, Conn. -- A Cos Cob man charged in connection with a near-fatal heroin overdose Dec. 29 has been charged in connection with a second near-fatal heroin overdose on Jan. 12, Greenwich police said Monday.

Robert Wolterstorff, 24, of 54 North Old Stone Bridge Road, along with brother and sister Daisy Bongiorni, 21, and Tyler Bongiorni, 24, both of 8 Sheephill Road in Riverside are each charged with second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit second-degree assault, sale of narcotics and conspiracy to sell narcotics.

Police said the three are charged in connection with the overdose of a woman in her 20s at a home in Glenville. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered family members performing CPR on the woman, police said. She was taken to Greenwich Hospital and survived.

In a statement, police said all three "conspired together to distribute and inject the victim with heroin."

Wolterstorff, who has an extensive criminal record, was being held in the Bridgeport Correctional Institute in connection with the Dec. 29 overdose charges. He was arrested last Thursday.

Daisy Bongiorno also remains in custody on charges of second-degree harassment and witness tampering in connection with the Dec. 29 incident. She was arrested early Friday morning after she is alleged to have texted the victim of the Dec. 29 overdose to recant her charges against Wolterstorff, police said.

Police said Tyler Bongiorni was held in custody at the Westchester County Correctional Center after he was arrested Sunday on petit larceny charges. He was held as a fugitive from justice on the Greenwich charges.
