Ex-Boyfriend Accused of 19 Counts of Harassment

Arrest stems from Tuesday night incident in Greenwich.


A man described by Greenwich Police as an ex-boyfriend of a town resident is facing more than a dozen harassment charges stemming from a Tuesday night incident.

According to a Greenwich Police report, the man was arrested following a 911 call from a western Greenwich resident at 9:19 p.m. July 24, who reported an ex-boyfriend was trying to break into her home through a sliding glass patio door.

The ex-boyfriend, identified by police as Bertin Lazaro, 19, of 425 W. Main St., Stamford, had been warned by police on July 22 and on July 24 not to contact the woman, according to the report. Lazaro is reported to have fled the woman's home and eventually was arrested at his home, according to the report.

Lazaro was charged with one count each of third-degree criminal trespass, second-degree breach of peace, criminal attempt of second-degree burglary, and 19 counts of second-degree harassment.

Lazaro was held in lieu of $10,000 bond and scheduled to appear July 25 in state Superior Court in Stamford.


Car vs. utility pole = driving drunk

Greenwich Police say they arrested a town resident on drunken driving charge after he was accused of driving his car into a utility pole on Byram Road.

Victor H. Bustamante, 39, of 41 Rodwell Ave., Greenwich, was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated and failure to use a signal, in connection with the crash that was reported at 4:30 p.m. July 23 in front of 178 Byram Rd.

Bustamante was taken to Greenwich Hospital for treatment of "non-life threatening injuries." After he was released from the hospital, police conducted sobriety tests, which Bustamante reportedly failed.

He was released after posting $250 bond and is scheduled to appear Aug. 6 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
