NORWALK, Conn. – A Norwalk man was charged with breaking into a woman’s home with a knife earlier this week, police said.
A Grove Street resident called police Tuesday night to report that someone had broken into her house between Sunday morning and the time of the report. The door showed signs that it had been pried open, and items were thrown around the house, according to the police report.
The resident told police that she believed Hector Aguilar, 31, of Snowden Street was the suspect, who she identified as an ex-boyfriend, police said. She later reported that Aguilar had called her to tell her that he had used a knife to get into the house Sunday night and had waited for her until the morning, according to the police report.
Officers contacted Aguilar, and he admitted to breaking into the house, police said. He then turned himself in when police notified him of a warrant for his arrest Wednesday.
Aguilar was charged with third-degree burglary, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct. He was held on $50,000 bond and is due in court Thursday.
