DANBURY -- A 30-year-old Danbury man was charged with breaking into his former girlfriend's home early Monday morning and assaulting her current boyfriend, said Danbury police spokesman Capt. Thomas Wendel.
Police say Milton Soliz, of Roger Avenue, appeared to be intoxicated as he forced his way into the woman's home about 3:40 a.m. by pushing out a window-mounted air-conditioning unit and clambering through the open window.
The former couple had not been romantically involved for about three years but have a 6-year-old daughter together, Wendel said.
Once inside, Soliz tussled with the unidentified woman's male roommate, as his former girlfriend and their daughter looked on, Wendel said.
After a brief struggle, the roommate managed to get Soliz out of the house, police said.
By the time officers arrived, Soliz was engaged in a fight with the woman's boyfriend, who had arrived shortly after the break-in, Wendel said.
The boyfriend, who was not been identified by police, was bitten during the confrontation but declined medical attention at the scene.
Soliz, Wendel said, "was covered in dirt, and had numerous scratches on his face, hands and arms."
No other injuries were reported.
Police records show Soliz was charged with second-degree burglary, two counts of third-degree assault, risk of injury to a minor and disorderly conduct.
He was also charged with interfering with the duties of a police officer after he spit on one of the responding officers during his arrest, Wendel said.
Soliz is being held on $10,000 bond. His initial court date has not been set.
