Maintenance Man Accused of Threatening Woman Who Called Police on Him

The man was accused of exposing himself, then sending her a photo of him holding a gun.

A hotel maintenance worker in North Haven is accused of exposing himself to a prospective renter, then threatening her for calling police, according to police.

Police said 37-year-old Steven Revera Freytes invited a prospective renter to come to his room on July 13 and he was exposed when the victim opened the door.

When the victim said she was going to call police, Freytes threatened to kill her if she dialed 911, police said. Once the woman ran away, 911 was called.

Freytes was charged with public indecency, threatening, disorderly conduct and interfering with police, police said. He was released on a $1,000 bond.

A week later, Freytes sent the victim from the previous incident a picture of him holding a gun with a message saying he knows where she lives and the photo is for her calling the police, police said.

Officers again arrested Freytes and charged with threatening, tampering with a witness, breach of peace and criminal possession of a firearm.

Freytes was held on $50,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
