STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Long Island, N.Y., man allegedly harassed his wife by making four dozen telephone calls to her earlier this month and then in a phone call with police threatened to beat her up and do the same to the police officer, Stamford Police said.
The couple are separated and on Feb. 4 he called his wife 21 times on the home phone and 27 times on her cell phone in a 24-hour period, Sgt. Simon Blanc said.
Police were called that day and when they arrived at the woman's Stamford home the man is alleged to have called again and this time spoke with an officer. The man's attitude didn't improve, Blanc said, as he allegedly threatened to "come over there and kick her ass and kick the officer's ass too."
Charged with 48 counts of second-degree harassment and two counts of second-degree threatening was Andrew Cummings, 45, of 1714 Manatuck Blvd., Bayshore, N.Y. He was arrested Monday and his bond was set at $10,000 and he was held for arraignment onTuesday.
