Man extradited to Stamford on harassment and stalking charges
STAMFORD—A Norwalk man wanted for two months by police for harassing and stalking a city woman was extradited from New York City and arraigned at the Stamford courthouse Wednesday.
Peter Diaz, Jr. 50, of Martin Luther King Drive, was charged with six counts each of violating a judge’s restraining order and second-degree harassment and three counts of first-degree stalking and is being held in lieu of a $100,000 court appearance bond.
Police have been looking for Diaz for about two months, but were unable to bring him in. Lt. TomScanlon said officers reached out to the Bronx Borough Warrant Squad and they were able to apprehend Diaz earlier this month.
On Nov. 22, 2018 police were contacted by a woman who said that Diaz had been contacting her in violation of a protective order.
According to his four-page arrest affidavit, the woman showed police numerous texts that Diaz sent to her.
One text from Nov. 20 said, “Wow you went and file a restraining order on me at my job than lie to my face.” The woman explained that she recently terminated her six-year relationship with Diaz. The woman said she had been granted a restraining order and had it served on Diaz on Nov. 20, the affidavit said.
the woman also said that Diaz went to the restaurant where her daughter worked and talked to her about the relationship he had with her mother. The woman told police that she is “fearful” for her life because Diaz is acting irrationally.
A few days later he texted her saying, “I see you and everybody.” Two days later another text from Diaz came in saying, “You took off the rings,” the affidavit said. The woman explained that she is no longer wearing the ring he gave her and she does not know how he knows she is no longer wearing the ring.
