North Haven police have arrested a man who they said tried to break into an apartment where a mother was home with her 11-year-old son.
A resident of Monroe Street called police
at 9:20 a.m. on Tuesday to report a man was trying to break into her home.
The man, who police identified as Shaun Bianchi, 26, had broken in through a basement door, walked through the basement and tried to break into the first-floor apartment, but the door was locked, so he started banging on the door, police said.
When the woman told the man she was calling police, Bianchi ran from the area, but police found him nearby and he was taken into custody.
Bianchi was charged with third-degree burglary, risk of injury to a minor and criminal trespass.
He was held on bond and will be arraigned in Meriden Superior Court.
The charges are not listed on the online docket and it is not clear if Bianchi has an attorney.
