A Fairfield County woman was arrested for allegedly violating a protective order and hitting the victim in the face.
Christina Kovachev, age 43, of Darien, was arrested on Tuesday, May 25, when Darien police were dispatched to a home for a domestic incident.
When officers arrived at the home the victim told them that Kovachev had arrived unannounced and the two had gotten into an argument, said Sgt. James Palmieri.
During the argument, Palmieri said Kovachev struck the victim in the face with a closed fist causing a "visible injury."
It was also determined that there was an active order of protection forbidding Kovachev from assaulting the victim.
Kovachev was arrested and charged with assault and violation of a protective order.
She was held on a $50,000 bond.
