Greg Peck, 42, of 184 Park St., New Canaan, was arrested Jan. 29 on charges of first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening, unlawful restraint and two counts for interfering with a 9-1-1 call.
The charges stem from Dec. 8 incident when, police said, he threatened to kill his 44-year-old girlfriend. The victim told police that Peck was angry, grabbed a knife and held it near her face, police said. The woman then tried to call police twice, but Peck grabbed the phone and threw it on the floor, according to the report.
Peck had been arrested Jan. 13 on charges related to a Jan. 12 incident, in which the victim said he threatened her, grabbed her and picked her up by the arm, according to police. When police went to Peck's home to arrest him on charges of second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct, he resisted being handcuffed and had to be tased, according to police.
When the victim filed a report about the Jan. 12 incident, she also mentioned Peck had threatened to kill her with a knife in early December, but because the incident had happened more than a month prior, police had to apply for a different arrest warrant, which took about two weeks to be approved, according to the report.
After learning a warrant was issued for his arrest, Peck turned himself in at about 5 p.m. Jan. 29.
