Police dispatched to the 100 block of Fairfield Ave. Friday morning for reports of a burglary in progress arrived on the scene just as the apartment dweller arrived home herself, police said Friday afternoon.
After receiving a call from neighbors at approximately 7:46 a.m. that two men were seen entering through a first-floor rear window of a two-story apartment, police were able to stop the woman who lived in the apartment from going inside, police said.
The officers then surrounded the building, and the officer in the rear reported to the officer and woman that he could see two males in the upstairs apartment bathroom through a window, according to police.
Authorities reported the owner said no one should be inside and handed the them her keys. Police unlocked the door, where they found the two males in the living room—their hands already in the air, according to police.
The men were in possession of a backpack and the apartment had been ransacked, according to authorities, who said one of the first things the pair had gone after was liquor.
Both parties were placed under arrest.
Carmelo Martinez, 20, of Olive St. in Bridgeport, was charged with second-degree burglary, second-degree conspiracy to commit burglary, possession of burglar tools and risk of injury to a child (family).
The risk of injury charge stems from Martinez choice for an alleged accomplice, an unidentified 14-year-old boy who is currently being processed through the juvenile division of the Stamford Police Department.
As police escorted the victim around her apartment to survey the scene, authorities said she turned to them and asked where her kitchen window was.
Police discovered the entry point to the apartment—Martinez and his accomplice had somehow allegedly removed the entire kitchen window, frame and all, to gain access to the apartment. Police found it dumped in the rear of a neighbors yard.
Martinez was being held Friday on a $50,000 bond. Police said they were familiar with the suspect from previous incidents.
