Police seek suspect in New Fairfield assault


The Connecticut State Police has released a wanted poster showing a sketch of the man who they said is responsible for breaking into a New Fairfield home and hitting a woman last month. 

According to police, a woman was assaulted by an unidentified man when she returned to her home on Newfane Road around 10:15 a.m. on Sept. 25. Following the assault, the man fled the home, police said.

The woman was taken to Danbury Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

When troopers arrived, they searched the surrounding area with a K-9, however they were unsuccessful in locating the suspect.

The man is said to be in his 30s with no facial hair and brown eyes. He is described as being 5'9" to 6' tall and was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, low-rider blue jeans and black sneakers during the incident.

Police said the man was seen in the area about a week prior to the assault and burglary.

The incident is still under investigation by state police. Anyone with information about the incident should contact the state police at 203-696-2569 or the New Fairfield Resident State Troopers Office at 203-312-570.
