SOUTHINGTON - A Meriden man was arrested Wednesday and charged with leaving a Southington resident more than 20 threatening voicemails.

David Dionzio, 54, was arrested after he was spotted at the TA Travel Center, on Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike. Police were called there on the report of a suspicious man loitering in the area.

According to police, officers discovered that Dionzio had a warrant out for his arrest in connection with a domestic violence incident. Police said he left the victim, who has not been identified, more than 20 threatening voicemails on April 30.

Dionzio faces charges of second-degree threatening, second-degree harassment and second-degree breach of peace. He was held on $100,000 bond and was expected to be arraigned Thursday in Bristol Superior Court.

Police said Dionzio is also wanted on one count of second-degree failure to appear. This stems from a missed court date in Meriden court on charges of evading responsibility, passing violation and operating a motor vehicle without insurance.
