FAIRFIELD — A Monroe man is facing charges after police said he vandalized his former girlfriend’s car while it was parked at Whole Foods Monday.

Erik Siclari, 25, of Harvester Road, was charged with third-degree criminal mischief and breach of peace. Siclari allegedly admitted via text messages to writing profanities on her car with a marker. The two, who have a child together, had been arguing earlier over the state of their relationship.

According to the report, Siclari sent a text to her, saying he got “payback” against her, and when she asked what he meant, he told her she would understand at the end of her shift at Whole Foods.

When she left shortly after 10 p.m., he was was parked outside. She asked what he was doing there, and she said he didn’t answer and just drove off. Then, she saw the damage to her car. Profanities were written on the front windshield and the driver’s side window. Several bumper stickers were partially torn off, and there was broken glass under the rear tires. An open Powerade bottle was stuck into a window, and liquid poured into the car’s interior.

Siclari then allegedly messaged her, asking did she want to meet him at her house so he could “finish this up.” Another text message from Siclari offered her $100 to drop the matter with police.

Siclari was arrested around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, and was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court later that same day.
