NORWALK, Conn. A Bridgeport man was arrested Saturday in South Norwalk after threatening to shoot a Norwalk woman he didn't know, Norwalk police said.
The next night, he allegedly got into a confrontation with police on South Main Street, and was arrested again.
Two women walked into police headquarters at about 4 p.m. Saturday to say they were scared as a man had threatened to shoot them nearby, Sgt. Lisa Cotto said. Officer Garrett Kruger escorted the women back to the Chestnut Street home in which one of them lives and arrested Rafael Delgado, 33, of 575 Maple St., Bridgeport, who still was in the area.
Officer Adam Mulkern was driving north on South Main Street, near Merritt Street, at about 10:45 p.m. Sunday when Delgado yelled an obscenity at the passing vehicle, Cotto said. Mulkern tried to turn around, but Delgado, who allegedly seemed to be in an altered state and was very aggressive, stepped into the path of the car. He yelled at other cars to stop, refused to get back on the sidewalk and would not let police pat him down, police said.
He allegedly tried to attack the police with his hands and was arrested.
Delgado was charged in the Saturday incident with threatening second degree, criminal trespass first degree and breach of peace second degree. Bond was set at $1,500.
For the alleged Sunday incident, Delgado was charged with obstructing traffic, interfering with an officer and breach of peace second degree. Bond was set at $500.
