MONROE, CT — A 37-year-old Newtown woman was issued a misdemeanor summons for second-degree breach of peace after a physical altercation with another female patron at Starbucks, 525 Main St., Tuesday morning.
Witnesses told police the woman walked into Starbucks just before 11 a.m., noticed a 41-year-old female patron she knew sitting at a table with a cup of coffee, and walked up to her while calling her names.
The other customer stood up and told her to watch her mouth, according to the report.
Police said the argument escalated and the woman pushed the patron who had stood up, only to fall to the floor when she pushed her back.
Starbucks employees asked the woman who started the fight to leave, but before she left, police said she took the other customer’s set of keys off the table and threw it across the room.
The Newtown woman was released on a promise to appear in court on April 4.
Police said the victim also lives in Newtown and the two women have an ongoing dispute.
A 52-year-old Monroe man received an email from his employer about an unemployment claim submitted in his name, but he had never filed a claim, according to a police complaint filed Thursday.
Police said he had no monetary loss at this time and was advised to contact any banks he does business with, the major credit bureaus, Social Security Administration and Connecticut Department of Labor about the fraudulent claim.
