    Calvin Burruss was arrested in New Haven on Tuesday.

    A 23-year-old New Haven man was arrested on Tuesday afternoon, accused of grabbing his teenage neighbor, according to police.

    Police responded to an apartment around 4 p.m. on Tuesday after receiving a complaint of risk of injury to a child.

    A 13-year-old girl told police she heard the unlocked door of her family's apartment open when she was upstairs. When she looked behind her, she saw her neighbor, Calvin Burruss, standing in the doorway, according to police.

    Burruss told her he was home alone and invited her over, but she  said no and told him to leave, police said.

    The girl thought her neighbor left, but minutes later, she again saw him in the doorway and he grabbed her, wrapping his arms around her, police said.

    The teen told police that she pushed Burruss away, ran to another room and called mother, who got on the phone with Burruss and told him to get out of her apartment, police said.

    She then told her daughter to call police.

    Burruss was charged with risk of injury to a minor, sexual assault in the fourth degree and burglary in the second degree.
