#Bridgeport, CT – Nov. 12, 2013 – Two men face larceny and burglary charges after an incident on Gurdon Street.

Officer Ian Schumaker responded to the area of 90 Gurdon just before 3 a.m. Sunday after a concerned citizen contacted police about a possible burglary in progress.

Police were told a Subaru and a Honda Civic pulled up to the area and that three males appeared to be walking between the Civic and the side of 90 Gurdon Street, which is an abandoned house.

When police arrived, Sgt. Vincent Ingrassia and Officer Jamie Jarrett detained one man, later identified as Erick Calderon, 26, of Bridgeport, as he walked away from the Civic. Officer Jeffrey Franco spotted a second male who was apprehended while hiding behind a garage after a foot chase. He was identified as Luis Guzman, 35, of Bridgeport.

The Civic, which was believed to be an unreported stolen car, had been partially stripped. Items from its interior were recovered on the side of the house.

The two men face charges of larceny, interfering with police and burglary.
