PITTSFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A man was arrested in Pittsfield in connection with an armed burglary in Connecticut
According to Pittsfield Police Lt. Jeffrey Bradford, police were called to 316 North Street to keep the peace while a woman got some of her belongings from the residence she used to share with her former boyfriend.
When police got to the residence Bradford said they discovered the boyfriend, 23-year-old Malik Green-Walter, had outstanding warrants from Enfield, Connecticut for charges that included first-degree criminal mischief and second-degree burglary-firearm.
When Green-Walter saw police he allegedly ran onto the room of the apartment building where officers saw him climbing down the building and sliding on cable lines.
Police were able to communicate with him via cell phone and encouraged him to surrender. A short time later, Green-Walter was seen re-entering the building through a window.
He surrendered to police and is being held on $25,000 bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Pittsfield District Court sometime Monday.
