Ten years after their break up, a woman showed up on her ex-boyfriend’s porch in New Haven, Connecticut demanding $20, according to New Haven police.

When police responded and charged her with first-degree criminal trespass and second-degree breach of peace, they served her with four outstanding warrants.

Police arrived on the scene after a complaint was made and a 53-year-old man told officers he has been trying in vain to get his ex-girlfriend to leave him alone.

The two broke up in 2003, according to police, and Carol Ann Mansfield, 44, of Waterbury, Conn., showed up on her ex-boyfriend’s front porch Thursday morning, yelling and demanding $20, according to police.

He told her over and over again to leave, which just made her angry, according to police.

Then, he gave her the money to avoid further disruption for his neighbors and to preserve his failing health, according to a news release.

Mansfield was served with four outstanding warrants with charges including; third-degree criminal mischief, three counts of first-degree criminal trespassing, eight counts of second-degree failing to appear in court, use of a motor vehicle without permission, three counts of probation violation and second-degree threatening.
