Brookfield Police have arrested a New Milford man for allegedly assaulting, threatening and kidnapping a woman. 30-year old Joseph Caruso was charged with 14 felony and 8 misdemeanor offenses earlier this month. The Newstimes reports that someone reported a domestic violence incident involving Caruso and a 33-year old town resident. The woman agreed to talk with police, who say she had visible bruising, cuts and a large bump on the back of her head. The published report says the victim told police that Caruso strangled, sexually assaulted and slapped her repeatedly in the face before barricading her in a bedroom. He allegedly held her face under flowing sink water and then strangled her until she passed out. Caruso reportedly tried stabbing himself before putting a pair pf scissors to her neck and saying, “I’m going to kill you so you’re not with anyone else.” Police say a 9-year-old boy was in a nearby bedroom. Caruso has been charged with attempt to commit sexual assault, unlawful restraint, risk of injury to child, criminal mischief, two counts of sexual assault, two counts of threatening, three counts of 1st degree assault and four counts of 3rd degree assault.
