Officers arrested a Bronx, New York woman for trying to force her way into a Jonathan Lane home and threatening to shoot the homeowner while her boyfriend was nabbed for drug possession, police said today.
They said the woman, Cristin Towle, 35, was charged wit first-degree criminal trespass and threatening. Her boyfriend, Seneca Abreu, 40, was charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia afer he was found with 11 bundles of heroin and drug paraphernalia.
According to Lt. David Farrell, officers responded to Jonathan Lane, off Treadwell Avenue, around 11:30 p.m. Thursday following a complaint.
The two suspects were located a short time later on the property of 435 Riverside Ave. Towle told the officer she and her boyfriend were simply taking a walk. The victim had a different story.
“The homeowner-victim on Jonathan Lane reported that Towle knocked on the door and attempted to enter the home,” Farrell said.
“The victim tried to close the door, but Towle kept trying to get inside the house. As another homeowner came to the door, Towle walked away and met her boyfriend, Seneca Abreu, near the road.
“Towle was heard saying, ‘We’re coming back, and we’re gonna shoot him,’ referring to the homeowner,” he added. “It was unclear as to why Towle and Abreu were on the property to begin with.”
Farrell said that while the suspects were being detained, officers located 11 bundles of heroin, one syringe, a tourniquet, and a small metal candleholder in Abreu’s zippered shorts pocket.
Both are scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court to face charges on Thursday, Aug. 3.
