Norwalk Man Arrested After Following Stranger in Newtown: Police

Newtown Police have arrested a man from Norwalk on an outstanding warrant on Friday. Police said 20-year-old Francesco Gurnari turned himself in after learning of his outstanding warrant. He was arrested and charged with stalking and breach of peace.

According to officers, the charges stem from an earlier incident where he followed a female in his vehicle and on foot to several businesses in town and continued to follow her to her home. Gurnari did not know the woman he was following.

Officers said the woman called police when she feared for her safety and provided police with Gurnari's description and the vehicle he was driving.

Gurnari admitted to officers that he had been following the woman and said he had followed other women in the past.

He was released on $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Danbury Court on October 10.

Police said Gurnari was also arrested by Monroe Police on September 14 after an incident where they said he exposed himself and touched himself in front of a woman who was pumping gas at a local gas station. Charges from Monroe Police Department are still pending in Bridgeport Superior Court.
