SOUTHINGTON - A Milford man is facing charges for leaving a number of harassing messages at a Southington bank.

Jonathan Estok, 39, allegedly used vulgar language and made “several inappropriate references about” a female bank employee’s “anatomy,” according to the arrest warrant.

Estok was arrested Thursday on charges of second-degree harassment and disorderly conduct.

According to the warrant, a bank employee called Estok on Sept. 7 to follow up with complaints he made that day about overdraft fees. She left a voicemail and returned to work on Sept. 14 after being out of the office.

Upon listening to her voicemail, the woman heard several messages from Estok in which he used vulgar language and told the victim she would be fired if she reported the voicemails. Police said he also rambled during the messages and referenced the FBI, the CIA and “the government” multiple times.

“Oh by the way, how do you like the new US President?” Estok asked in the voicemails. “You gonna (sic) cry over it you Alt Left? How’s that? How’s that? Maybe you’ll get deported after this.”

Police wrote in the warrant that Estok admitted to leaving the voicemails and was cooperative with investigators.

Estok was arraigned Thursday, in Bristol Superior Court, where officials said he has no prior criminal record. He was released on a promise to appear, and his case was continued to Nov. 14. He did not enter a plea Thursday.
