Police: Monroe man kicked in door, assaulted ex
A Monroe man was arrested after he allegedly kicked in the door of his ex-girlfriend’s home and assaulted her in front of her son.
In a prepared statement, Shelton Police Detective Richard Bango said 34-year-old Monroe resident Scott Ralston showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s Shelton home at about 3 a.m. Monday, pounding on the door.
“The ex-girlfriend, who was in the residence with her 2-year-old son, barricaded herself in by placing a couch against the locked door,” Bango said. “Ralston kicked the door until he was able to make entry. Once inside Ralston grabbed the ex-girlfriend by the hair and dragged her into the kitchen where he hit and kicked her. The incident took place in the presence of the victim’s 2-year-old son.”
Ralston’s ex-girlfriend was checked by EMS and refused further treatment, Bango said. Ralston was found at Griffin Hospital and arrested.
Ralston was charged with home invasion, third-degree assault, interfering with an emergency call, risk of injury to a minor, disorderly conduct and third-degree criminal mischief.
He was held on $250,000 bond pending arraignment Tuesday at Superior Court in Derby.
