On December 3rd at approximately 2:30a.m. Hamden Police responded to a Benton Street address on the report of a domestic complaint.
Investigation revealed that the 22 year-old female resident was in her bed, when she heard noises. Her ex-boyfriend, who was identified as Bobby Coker, allegedly climbed onto the roof of her second floor porch and then forced entry through a bedroom window.

A short time thereafter, Officer Tim Brown observed Coker’s vehicle on Benton Street. He was subsequently arrested.
