Cops: A decade after breakup, woman tracks down ex-boyfriend to demand $20

New Haven Police

Carol Mansfield, 44, of Waterbury, Conn., was arrested outside of her ex-boyfriend's house when she showed up demanding $20, according to New Haven Police.

Ten years after their breakup, a woman showed up on her ex-boyfriend’s porch, demanding $20, according to police.

When police responded and charged her with first-degree criminal trespass and second-degree breach of peace, they served her with four outstanding warrants.

Police responded to Hillside Avenue in New Haven, Conn., at 8:41 a.m. on Thursday after a complaint was made and a 53-year-old man told officers he has been trying in vain to get his ex-girlfriend to leave him alone.

The two broke up in 2003, according to police. They say Carol Ann Mansfield, 44, of Waterbury, Conn., showed up on her ex-boyfriend’s front porch, yelling and demanding $20.

He told her over and over again to leave, which just made her angry, according to police.

Mansfield was served with four outstanding warrants with charges including; third-degree criminal mischief, three counts of first-degree criminal trespassing, eight counts of second-degree failing to appear in court, use of a motor vehicle without permission, three counts of probation violation and second-degree threatening.
