NORWALK — A Fairfield woman was charged on a warrant with harassment and stalking after she allegedly sent hundreds of text messages to a former roommate, police said.
On Sept. 29 at around 2 a.m., the victim contacted police to report that Emilee Brezina had been harassing them.
The victim told police Brezina had been a roommate but the relationship soured after Brezina had taken the victim’s car without permission. The woman told police Brezina had sent “countless threatening and harassing” text messages.
An officer attempted to contact Brezina by telephone, but said when he identified himself as a police officer, the person hung up on him.
An arrest warrant for Brezina was obtained, and on Tuesday morning she turned herself in at Norwalk police headquarters.
Brezina, 20, of Winnepoge Drive, was charged with third-degree stalking and second-degree harassment. Her bond was set at $10,000 and she was given a court date of Oct. 31.
According to court records, Brezina is on probation and has several felony convictions.
She pleaded guilty to a September 2015 assault on a peace officer in Stratford and was sentenced in July to three years probation, according to court records.
Court records show Brezina was convicted of second-degree breach of peace and assault on a peace officer following a May 2017 arrest in Fairfield. She was sentenced to three years probation.
On a third conviction for third-degree larceny in Fairfield, Brezina was sentenced in July to an additional three years probation, according to court records.
