Breaking News: New Canaan Car Theft Suspects Caught Near Trumbull Mall

Man Charged With Robbing Ex-Roommate at Gunpoint

A Norwalk man evicted his roommate recently because the man had been arrested, and he didn’t want any trouble. In return, the former roommate allegedly held him up in the driveway, robbing him of his rent money at gunpoint.

Andres Nieves, 30, of 1460 Washington St., New York, N.Y., was extradited from a Manhattan courthouse on Monday by two Norwalk police detectives. Nieves was arrested and charged with first-degree robbery and fifth-degree larceny. Bond was set at $75,000.

Nieves was arrested Jan. 19 and charged with second-degree larceny because he was allegedly in possession of a stolen vehicle, which he said was a gift from a friend in New York. Police found him with the vehicle in the Meadow Gardens complex. He has a police record that includes robbery convictions.

Nieves allegedly robbed his former roommate Feb. 6 in the driveway at 23 Laura St., saying, “This is what happens when you kick people out of the apartment.” He demanded what was in his victim’s pocket, then reached in and took out the $900 himself.

Sgt. Lisa Cotto did not know what type of gun was allegedly used.
