The 19-year-old Darien man who police said ran naked through town lawns and a house before being subdued with a stun gun was ordered to have no contact with the homeowners.

State Superior Court Judge Erika Tindall also told Eric Christensen, of 17 Thomasina Lane, at his arraignment Friday, July 12, that he cannot set foot on the property police said he burglarized on June 30.

Christensen was arrested June 30 on charges of second-degree burglary, risk of injury to a minor and interfering with an officer.

Neighbors on Stephen Mather Road reported seeing Christensen running naked through yards, police said.

Police chased him on foot and into an occupied home. He ran into a room where there were two children, at which point police were able to subdue him with a stun gun.

Police said Christensen was under the influence of a hallucinogenic narcotic and was taken to Stamford Hospital. He was released and charged later that night.

He is scheduled to appear in court again on Friday, July 25.
