On Tuesday June 22nd, at approximately 7:46am, Connecticut State Police in Danielson received a 911 call reporting a domestic dispute. The victim, a 24 year old female left her home and ran to a neighbor’s home to make the 911 call. Christopher Fitton of Danielson proceeded to follow her and break into the neighbor’s residence and assaulted the woman resulting in minor physical injuries. Troopers launched an investigation upon arrival and discovered that Fitton had physically broken through the door and located the female inside the residence. Fitton, who was armed with a knife said that he was going to kill her. Fitton damaged an item in the home before knocking the female over and started punching her in the face multiple times. The female was able to flee where Fitton chased her to the outside, after he prevented her from calling 911, where he caught her and forced her into his car. She managed to get away a second time and get to the neighbor’s for help. At this time, Fitton drove away in his vehicle. State Police were able to locate him in Danielson where he was arrested and charged with multiple charges, including home invasion. Fitton is being held on $100,000 bond and will appear in Danielson Superior Court tomorrow. Fitton already has a record and is on probation for 3 separate criminal incidents.
