Mohammed Moussa, 24, of Pierce Street, was charged last Friday afternoon with violating a protective order after the manager of the Nutmeg Bowl on Villa Avenue reported to police a "suspicious" car parked near the business' loading dock.

In the car, officers found Moussa and his wife, but officials said Moussa's wife had an active order of protection issued against him. He was released on a promise to have appeared Monday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
