Stamford Woman Charged Following Alleged Fight With Neighbor

Officers dispatched to the area of Courtland Circle Wednesday night for reports of neighbors in a dispute ended up arresting one and writing a summons to the other, police said Thursday afternoon.

When officers arrived at the scene, one of the women outside with a group of neighbors who had gathered to observe the unfolding scene reportedly walked towards officers with her hands out to them in a manner suggesting she should be cuffed, saying, "Just take me, just take me," police said. 

Police identified that person as Victoria L. Mason, 38, of Courtland Ave. As they investigated the incidents, several neighbors reported to police that Mason at soe point was carrying a weapon, but a cellphone video of the incident would later show she at no point was in possession of any type of weapon, police said. 

Officers did say Mason appeared to be acting strangely and in an overly animated manner. The incident was occurring on the front lawn of the neighbors shared lawn and the yelling was reportedly taking place in front of the children of Mariana Quinteros-Palencia, 26, of the same address but a different apartment on the property.

Mason was arrested and charged with risk of injury to a child and second-degree breach of peace (threatening.)

Quinteros-Palencia was arrested and released on a summons.
