NEW HAVEN — Police are looking for a suspect who they believe broke into a home and assaulted the owner, and it may have not been the first time it happened.

Officers were called to Weybosset Street Friday shortly before 11 p.m., after a neighbor said there was a disturbance next door. Police found the 46-year-old male victim who had been assaulted by a man who’d forced his way inside via a back door. The same suspect may have been involved in a similar incident against the same victim about one month ago at the same address according to police.

New Haven police said victim reported the suspect had a gun which he was able to wrestle from the suspect’s hand. The suspect is believed to be named Mark, and was described as a black man in his late 20s. He’s 6’1″ tall and weighs about 230 lbs.
