STAMFORD, Conn. — A Stamford man suspected of a 2009 burglary was arrested Tuesday, Sgt. Peter diSpagna said.
Two female Grant Avenue residents reported that a Hispanic male was in their apartment who had threatened to stab them with a screwdriver, according to diSpagna. He entered through a rear window and exited out the front door after confronting the residents, police said.
Fingerprints found on three rear windows lead police to suspect Tony "Milton" Saldarriaga, diSpagna said, adding that the suspect had tried two windows before entering a third.
The state laboratory found a match for the fingerprints to Saldarriaga in 2010, diSpagna said, and the department received an arrest warrant after the victims said they did not know the suspect.
Saldarriaga was found in Bridgeport yesterday and transported to Stamford, diSpagna said.
Saldarriaga, 48, of Stamford was charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree threatening, and risk of injury to a child, police said.
