    Cops: Man Burglarized Home, Threatened to Stab Resident
    Norwich Police
    David G. DeJesus is accused of breaking into a Norwich home and threatening to stab a resident.

    Norwich police have arrested a man who is accused of breaking into a home and threatening to stab the resident who confronted him.

    Police responded to a home on the McKinley Avenue Extension at 12:10 p.m. on Saturday after a resident called 911 to report a home burglary.

    Police said David G. DeJesus, 34, of Norwich, had forced his way into the home and was still there when one of the residents returned home.

    When he ran from the home, DeJesus threatened to stab the resident who confronted him, police said.

    The victim was able to give police the license plate number and a description of the car the intruder fled in and an officer saw a car matching the description minutes later on Town Street and apprehended the suspect.

    The items stolen from the home were in the car and police said they were able to recover them.

    DeJesus was charged with first-degree burglary, fifth-degree larceny, second-degree criminal mischief and second-degree threatening.

    He was held on a $50,000 cash/surety bond and will be arraigned Norwich Superior Court on Tuesday. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
