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.

    • Since starting the New Canaanite, we’ve consistently published the photos of arrested people when there’s a benefit to public safety in putting out as much information as possible—for example, scamming contractors, thieving nannies or people who try to enter school buildings illegally—and also when a person is charged with a violent assault or assault on a police officer. There are also times when an arrest is discussed so widely that it would be coy for us to withhold a mugshot—for example, Michelle Troconis at the time she first was charged in connection with the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos (which I think was obstructing prosecution and tampering with evidence).

  1. if one is arrested as a resident of Millport housing should that person (s)be permitted to remain on the premises- isn’t this town funded housing? rules have to be in place right?
