2 Arrested After Incident Behind Library, Senior Center in Hamden

Police arrested two people after investigating reports of men with handguns behind the Miller Memorial Library/Hamden Senior Center around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. 

Police said they found 48-year-old Willard Ar-Rahmaan Jr., of Hamden, unresponsive on the ground when they arrived, so they called Hamden Fire Rescue to respond.

As Ar-Rahmaan was lying down near an employee’s motor vehicle, a friend approached him and removed the facsimile firearm, tactical vest and handcuffs from him, police said. 

Officers arrested Ar-Rahmaan after he received medical treatment.

Ar-Rahmaan was charged with illegal use of a facsimile firearm, weapons in a motor vehicle and second-degree breach of peace.
