A man who made multiple unwarranted 911 calls has been located in the woods in Wilton, police say.

Wilton Police received multiple 911 reports of a male knocking on residents’ doors in the area of Arrow Head Road and Wilton Acres on Sunday, Nov. 17 around 10 p.m.

The man was also yelling, “I am going to get you,” according to police.

The man, later identified as Jonathan Damast, 44, of Wilton, allegedly made multiple calls to 911 and made vague comments about a train coming. He claimed the train would stop at mile marker 5.0, police say.

Many of Damast’s comments did not make sense, police say, and when asked if he had placed anything on the tracks, he allegedly laughed and gave vague locations of his whereabouts, adding that he could see the flashlights of officers searching for him.

Damast was eventually located in the woods behind 34 Arrow Head Road, according to police. He was arrested and charged with misuse of the 911 system.

Damast was released on a promise to appear and was scheduled to return to Norwalk Superior Court on Monday, Nov. 25.
