WATERTOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — An 88-year-old man is behind bars after police said he tried to shoot his nephew after he stole from him and damaged his cuckoo clock, Watertown police said.
Around 2:30 p.m. on Monday, officers said Daniel Cashman, of Waterbury, went into Stonybrook Construction with a gun, asking if his nephew was working.
An employee told police Cashman showed a police badge and said that the man stole two of his suits and a cane and damaged his cuckoo clock.
The employee said Cashman then started to tap the gun, which was in a holster strapped to his hip.
The worker then told Cashman his nephew was not working. He then thanked the employee and said he would return tomorrow, a police report stated.
Cashman was later arrested at his home. He is facing multiple charges including breach of peace. He was released from custody after a $5,000 non-surety bond.
The employee said Cashman seemed “confused and nonsensical” and did not unholster his gun.
