FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Fairfield police arrested a man Monday afternoon in connection with an incident last month when he went into the Yellow Moon Toy store and yelled at an employee, scaring customers, police said.
According to the police report, Mario Posta, 27, of Stratford, went into the toy store where his ex-girlfriend works on June 23 at 4:30 p.m. and began to yell at her and throw items around the store.
The woman called police, but Posta was gone before officers arrived, police said. Several witnesses asked officers whether the woman was all right because the man had been “out of control,” police said.
The victim told police that she and Posta had dated for 10 years but had recently broken up. He was angry that she was seeing someone new, she told officers.
Fairfield Police asked Stratford police to assist in locating Posta but were unsuccessful. On June 25, Posta went into the Fairfield police headquarters and was warned that he was not to have contact with the victim or return to the toy store, police said.
On Monday afternoon, police arrested Posta, charged him with breach of peace and held him on $25,000 bond. He went to court Tuesday morning.
