The son of a man who died after an assault in Bloomfield has been taken into custody in Stamford, where he was accused of shoplifting at a supermarket.
Police had been searching for 34-year-old Anthony Lewis Bussey since Sunday, May 12 after finding his 60-year-old father with severe injuries and he was taken into custody Sunday, June 2 at a Stop & Shop in Stamford.
Police said he is accused of shoplifting.
Police said in May that Bussey was wanted for questioning after officers responding to reports of a domestic assault on Glenwood Avenue around 10:40 a.m. found the victim unresponsive and bleeding heavily from his head.
The person who filed the complaint said he had been in the basement of the house and heard what sounded like a fight, so he went upstairs and found the victim on the floor, bleeding heavily from the head.
Officers did not find any suspect.
The victim was transported to St. Francis Hospital and found to have a broken arm and a skull fracture, police said. He died the next day, according to police.
Due to the significant nature of the incident, detectives advised the State Prosecutor's Office, who recommended the State Police Major Crime Unit process the scene. A search warrant was secured and executed to process the scene, police said.
Police said last month that they secured a warrant charging Bussey with assault in the first-degree on an elderly person and new charges were expected following the victim’s death.
