UPDATE: According to court records, Mr. Goldin pled to a lesser charge of creating a public disturbance, and the charges of second-degree strangulation, disorderly conduct, interfering with an emergency call and third-degree criminal mischief were dismissed.
A man faces numerous charges following a physical altercation with his wife last Friday night.
Marc Goldin, 49, of Turkey Hill Road South, was charged with second-degree strangulation, disorderly conduct, interfering with an emergency call and third-degree criminal mischief.
Officers responded to Goldin’s residence around 11:30 p.m. to investigate a report of a physical disturbance between a husband and wife. Investigating officers found evidence of a physical altercation and learned that when Goldin’s wife had tried to call 911 on her cellphone from the bathroom, where she had sought refuge, her husband forced his way in and grabbed the phone away from her, according to a police report.
It is then alleged that Goldin smashed his wife’s cellphone, interfering with an emergency call.
Goldin posted a $10,000 bond and was scheduled to have appeared Monday at state Superior Court in Norwalk.
