BRISTOL - A city woman is facing charges after admitting to police she filed a false complaint to get her boyfriend arrested on assault charges.

Carol Reyes-Delgado, 25, of 21 Divinity St., was so upset about something her boyfriend had said that she went to police and told them he had assaulted her while the two were driving on Memorial Boulevard on Dec. 12, according to the warrant for her arrest. She is facing charges of second-degree falsely reporting an incident and second-degree false statement.

Reyes-Delgado’s boyfriend, New Britain resident David Arroyo, was arrested Jan. 9 and charged with third-degree assault, second-degree breach of peace, coercion and a number of other offenses. Following his arraignment, Reyes-Delgado was advised by court officials to make a new statement to police, as she had admitted to court personnel that the allegations against Arroyo were false, the warrant said.

Reyes-Delgado went to police that day and made a new statement, confessing that she had previously lied to police to get Arroyo arrested after he threatened to damage Christmas toys that were purchased for their child, according to the warrant.

Reyes-Delgado was charged last week and released from custody, after posting $500 bond. She is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on Monday.

According to online judicial records, Arroyo’s case is still pending. He is being held on $2,500 bond, and is also scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
