New Canaan Police on Wednesday brought additional charges against a Norwalk man arrested in May for attempted murder in what authorities called a “random” assault on Valley Road. Mynor Romeo Alvarado-Canahui of 37 Woodward Ave., Apt. A2, was also charged at the time with first-degree assault and first-degree kidnapping after striking a woman with his car as she walked on Valley Road and then, after he was unable to put her into the rear of his vehicle, trying to drown her, according to police. At 10:15 a.m. Thursday, police brought charges of criminal attempt to commit first-degree sexual assault and criminal attempt at first-degree aggravated sexual assault. Already held at Bridgeport Correctional Facility, Alvarado-Canahui has had an additional $1 million added to his bond (already set at $750,000).
He hasn’t pleaded to the charges and is scheduled to appear Dec. 8 in state Superior Court, according to Connecticut Judicial Branch records.
