Greenwich police: Man charged for saying he killed girlfriend
A Stamford man who told a 911 dispatcher that he had killed his girlfriend -- a claim that he later recanted -- was arrested Wednesday, Greenwich police said.
Henry Jara-Villamarin, 19, of 45 Halpin Ave., was charged with second-degree falsely reporting an incident and falsely reporting an incident concerning serious injury or death.
Late Wednesday evening, Jara-Villamarin called 911 and said he was in the parking lot of Crumbs Bake Shop, 48 W. Putnam Ave., and that he had killed his girlfriend, police said. During the 911 call, Jara-Villamarin changed his story, saying he didn't kill his girlfriend, but wanted to, police said. A female voice could be heard during the call, police said.
Upon arrival, officers found a man and a woman in a vehicle in the parking lot, police said.
The driver, Jara-Villamarin, told officers that he and his girlfriend got into an argument and he wanted her out of the car, police said. When she refused, he grabbed her phone and dialed 911, police said.
According to Jara-Villamarin, he told the 911 operator he had killed his girlfriend so police would arrive faster, police said.
He was issued a $5,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford on Wednesday.
