A 15-year-old Branford resident came face to face with an intruder who broke into his home Tuesday afternoon.
Police said the teen was home on Patrick Lane in Branford when Andrew Kaik, 31, of North Branford, broke in around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.
A neighbor called police after watching Kaik's car back into the driveway, according to police. The neighbor didn't recognize Kaik and became suspicious when he went around the back of the house, then ran out to the car again and drove off.
Officers arrived ta the house and spoke with the teen, who was able to give police a description of Kaik and his vehicle, police said.
An officer on traffic duty spotted Kaik as he drove by a construction site on Mill Plain Road and pulled him over.
Kaik was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, risk of injury to a minor, home invasion and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was held on $50,000 bond and is due in court Wednesday morning.
It's not clear if Kaik has an attorney.
