FAIRFIELD, Conn. - A local woman was charged with filing a false report and her boyfriend with violating a protective order after officers responded to a call about a fight at the CVS Pharmacy on Black Rock Turnpike shortly after midnight Thursday, police said.
At 12:20 a.m., police received a call from a man saying that his mother had told him there was a large fight taking place in the CVS parking lot, police said.
Four officers responded but found nothing had happened, police said. Shortly afterward, the son called again and asked that officers check on his mother, Kimberly Anderson, 53, of Fairfield, because he had been unable to contact her after the initial call, police said.
When officers arrived, they found Anderson and her boyfriend Robert Kovatch, 49, of Fairfield, at the house on Mayfair Road.
Kovatch had been issued a protective order to stay away from the house after threatening to stab Anderson in November, police said.
Officers learned that Anderson had called her son hoping he would call police and report the false fight in hopes that police would show up and scare Kovatch, who had been going to the CVS at the time, police said.
Police charged Kovatch with violating a protective order and held him on $25,000 bond with a court date of Dec. 12. No information was available regarding his appearance.
Anderson was charged with interfering with an officer and second-degree falsely reporting an incident. She was released on a written promise to appear in court Dec. 23.
