On August 28 Greenwich Police arrested an Old Greenwich man after a warrant was issued for his arrest for Violation of Protective order on July 25.

Stein Erik Soelberg, 50, of 11 Shorelands Place was charged with Violation of Protective Order.

He was turned over to the custody of the State of CT Judicial Marshals for same day arraignment.

His bond was set at $10,000.

Back on Thursday, Aug 1 police arrested Soelberg after receiving a report of a subject ramming his car into parked cars in a parking lot on July 31 when Greenwich Police say they discovered two damaged vehicles.

“It was clear by the damage that one vehicle had intentionally rammed the other,” police said in their arrest report. The owner of the other vehicle had an active order of protection against Soelberg.

He was charged with Criminal Trespass 1, Criminal Mischief 1 (Class D Felony), Breach of Peace 2 and Violating a Standing Protective Order (Class D Felony). His bond was set at $100,000.

Also, Soelberg was arrested on June 25 and charged with Criminal Mischief and Breach of Peace after police received a report of a disorderly man in the lobby of the police station. The victim related she had just witnessed Soelberg urinating in her duffel bag right outside the entrance to police headquarters on Mason Street.

Back in February, CT State Police issued a missing person alert for Mr. Soelberg who was later found safe and in good health.

According to the CT Judicial Branch website, Mr Soelberg is next due in Stamford Superior Court on Sept 10, 2019.
