Fairfield police end investigation of assault, false imprisonment
The Fairfield Police Department has completed its investigation into Monday’s incident involving charges of false imprisonment and assault that resulted in the arrest of three Bloomfield residents.
No other charges are pending and the case is considered cleared by arrest, according to Fairfield Police Public Information Officer Capt. David Thomas.
“Fairfield Police Department officers have not identified any specific threats to citizens from this incident and it appears this was not a random act,” according to a police department media release Wednesday.
The initial report published in The Ledger Tuesday included information from the log of calls received daily at the law enforcement center dispatch, and described several calls received beginning at 4:21 p.m. Monday about a young man taken against his will in the Walmart parking lot and put into a car which contained other young men that then drove away.
“It appears this was a dispute over money and/or property, although it is believed the victim was not involved in the original dispute and was only a witness,” according to the media release.
“Officers have identified no additional threats to the public’s safety and the police department is not issuing any additional warnings.”
