Kurt Sassenberg, 48, of Red Hook, N.Y., was charged Thursday on a warrant with second-degree harassment.

According to police, Sassenberg was first warned last December to have no contact of any kind with his ex-wife, after the Fairfield woman complained about harassing emails and text messages he was sending to her.

In early January, the former wife reported to police a series of random vandalism incidents at her home, including a glass patio table that was smashed on what would have been the couple's anniversary.

Sassenberg was held on a $7,500 bond and was scheduled to have appeared last Friday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
