Police on Monday arrested a 21-year-old New Canaan man in connection with a domestic altercation at his apartment.
Arlind Bajraktari of 33 Millport Ave., Apt. 136, was charged with third-degree assault, second-degree threatening, disorderly conduct, interfering with an officer and violation of a protective order.
At about 9:55 p.m. on May 31, officers took a complaint from the victim of a domestic altercation that had occurred at the apartment earlier in the day, according to a police report.
Police couldn’t immediately find Bajraktari, the report said.
At about 12:05 a.m. on June 1, the victim called 9-1-1 to report that Bajraktari had returned to the residence and was trying to get inside, it said.
Officers found him outside and took him into custody, the report said. At police headquarters, he additionally was charged with failure to be fingerprinted and photographed (the mugshot above is from a prior arrest).
The victim had an existing order protecting them from Bajraktari, police said.
Bajraktari was held on $100,000 bond and scheduled to appear June 1 in state Superior Court.
Police withheld further details of the assault, saying it’s a domestic matter.
Bajraktari already was facing numerous criminal charges, according to Connecticut Judicial Branch records.
He has pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree threatening, disorderly conduct and second-degree violation of conditions of release that New Canaan Police brought in 2018, and faces second-degree threatening, interfering, third-degree assault, criminal violation of a restraining order and failure to comply with fingerprint request charges out of Stamford from 2019. In April 2020, Bajraktari was arrested by New Canaan Police and charged with first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree unlawful restraint, first-degree criminal trespass, disorderly conduct, risk of injury to a child, second-degree threatening and violation of a protective order, records show.
