NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk Police charged a Bloomfield man with trespassing after receiving a report of an attempt to break into a home Wednesday night, according to police reports.
A Laurel Street resident called police at 10:40 p.m., Wednesday, to report a man attempting to break into her home. The caller said she had stepped outside to see a man trying to turn a doorknob to an exterior door, according to the police report.
Officers arrived and saw Shaun McCrae, 26, of Bloomfield at the scene, police said. McCrae told police he was in the area to visit a family member, but could not give police a name for the family member, according to the report. He also gave police a false name during their initial interview, police said.
McCrae was arrested and charged with third-degree criminal trespass and criminal impersonation. During his arrest, officers also found that he had two active warrants for failure to appear charges, according to the police reports.
McCrae missed court dates for another trespassing charge in June and a driving under the influence charge in March, according to judicial system records. He was held on a combined $21,000 bond, and is due in court on Oct. 21.
