BRIDGEPORT, CONN. -- A 20-year-old burglary suspect was the driver involved in an accident that took the life of a Seymour man on Monday, April 18, police told The Trumbull Times.
Bridgeport police said Friday that an arrest warrant is being prepared for Bridgeport resident Geraldo Maldonado.
Maldonado had been arrested in February in connection with an attempted break-in at a Sunnycrest Road home in Trumbull, The Trumbull Times reported.
According to an earlier Daily Voice report, police said that David Anthony Anderson, 22, was killed near the intersection of Barnum Avenue and Pembroke Street in the city when his SUV was struck by a car driven by a man later identified by police as Maldonado.
According to a report by The Connecticut Post, Maldonado was being chased by police after, they said, he blew through several intersections without stopping.
In February, Maldonado ran across the busy Merritt Parkway and also dropped a weapon, which turned out to be a BB gun, as he was being pursued by Trumbull police investigating the attempted burglary, according to The Trumbull Times report.
Caught and arrested close to his Bridgeport home, Maldonado is due in court next month to face the burglary charges, The Trumbull Times story said.
