Eugene Goldshteyn, 23, of Rego Park, NY was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with harassing his ex-girlfriend through disturbing messages and photos.
According to Goldshteyn's arrest warrant, the victim, who had a standing restraining order against Goldshteyn since Jan. 16, 2012, contacted Officer Adriana Molina, an SPD cop of seven years, on Jan. 26, 2012 to report that Goldshteyn had been sending her "harassing text messages and pictures."
"The text messages are explicitly sexual in nature," an SPD court document states. Goldshteyn's arrest warrant goes on to state:
"One picture is of Eugene, standing in front of a mirror, wearing a white long-sleeve shirt and a red scarf. Second picture is of Eugene standing in front of a mirror, with his pants down, exposing himself. Eugene's face is not in the picture. However, his red scarf and white shirt, from the previous picture is. Third picture is of Eugene's exposed groin."
At that point, court documents state that Molina performed a protective order registry check on Goldshteyn. Molina confirmed that the stipulations of the victim's standing order against Goldshteyn forbade him from being within 100 yards away from her.
The protective order check was followed up with a NCIC background check, which revealed to Stamford police that Goldshteyn had been arrested twice in Aug. 2011 for third degree assault, reckless endangerment, second degree threatening, and violation of a protective order.
Finally, a Paperless Arrest Warrant check on Goldshteyn revealed that he had a standing PRAWN warrant. Based on all evidence and infractions, SPD decided to arrest Goldshteyn and charge him for each count of harassment against the victim.
Goldshetyn, who was arrested at 1:15 p.m. on Tuesday, was being held on an undisclosed bond, and appeared in court Wednesday afternoon.
