GREENWICH, Conn. (WTNH) — A Stamford man is accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend at her Greenwich home more than nine months after their relationship was over.
On December 23rd, the victim called Greenwich police asking for help with a harassment complaint. Police learned that 37-year-old Wilfredo Lazo had been in contact with the victim by sending her what they described as numerous text messages.
The victim told police that she and Lazo had been in a dating relationship in the past, but she ended that relationship in March. She stopped communication with Lazo in March, and did not want to have any further contact with him.
Police said that while attempting to leave her home, the victim noticed that Lazo’s car was parked on the side of the road near her house. The victim left her home, and saw Lazo move his car to a side street that was still within view of the house. The victim then called Greenwich police to report what was happening, roughly two hours after she first noticed Lazo’s car.
When officers arrived in the neighborhood, they saw Lazo still sitting in his car parked on the side street. Lazo noticed the police approaching, and attempted to leave the area.
Officers stopped Lazo, and said he was evasive with his answers when they questioned what he was doing in the neighborhood.
Lazo was arrested and charged with stalking. He was issued a $5,000 bond, and arraigned in Stamford Superior Court on Thursday.
