Problems began shortly after 3 p.m. and service was out until just before 11 p.m. Shuttle service operated between Grand Central and Stamford for a portion of the outage.

Spokesman Dan Brucker said damaged pantographs on two trains traveling on separate tracks just west of Greenwich caused the service suspension. The pantographs carry electricity from the overhead wires.

To make matters worse, Metro-North said because of technical problems, the Customer Information Center phone number is temporarily out of service

The arrest of Timothy Nikolis, 24, came a short time after Norwalk police announced the arrest of another Westport man Friday night in the robbery of another Norwalk bank on Friday. Christopher Wallace of Maple Avenue North was arrested on Main Avenue in Norwalk.

Neither Westport nor Norwalk police indicated that the two men were connected other than they robbed different branches of the same bank.

Westport police said that at about 11 a.m. they received information that Nikolis, who was staying at the Gillespie Center shelter at 45 Jesup Road, was wanted in the Tuesday robbery of the Fairfield County Savings Bank on Chestnut Hill Avenue.
