Police: Shelton man displays gun, barricades himself in home

A Shelton man was arrested Wednesday night after police say he pointed a gun at a victim during a domestic dispute.

Last night around 7:45 p.m., the Shelton Police Department received a 9-1-1 call regarding a domestic dispute at a residence in the downtown area.

Upon arrival officers spoke with the victim who told police that she got into a verbal dispute with Jayson Karczmarczyk, 39.

At one point during the argument Karczmarczyk displayed a gun, police reports say. The victim stated that she attempted to call police, but Karczmarczyk knocked the phone out of her hand, pushed her to the ground and kicked her several times in the head, according to police.

Victim able to leave the house

The victim was screaming when a neighbor knocked on the door, which caused Karczmarczyk to stop his assault. The victim was then able to leave the residence.

Police arrived on scene, but Karczmarczyk refused to come out of the residence. After approximately one hour, he exited the residence and was arrested.

Karczmarczyk allegedly resisted with officers while being taken into custody. He was charged with criminal possession of a firearm, third-degree assault, assault on a police officer, interfering with an emergency call, and disorderly conduct.

He was held on a $50,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned today at state Superior Court in Derby.

The victim received medical attention for her injuries. An officer injured his hand while arresting Karczmarczyk and he was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
