A Norwalk police officer on patrol spotted a man taking tools from a van with shatter glass on the ground, which led to the man's arrest on burglary charges, police said.
Norwalk police gave this account (an accusation not proven in court) of the incident:
At about 2:28 a.m. Wednesday, Paul Kurensky, 43, of Edgewood Street, Norwalk saw a police patrol car pulling up to where he was -- near the intersection of Larsen Street and South Main Street in South Norwalk. Kurensky ran behind a house, jumped a fence and raced up South Main Street.
Other police officers caught the man near 143 1/2 S. Main St. He was taken into custody after an officer pointed a taser gun at him and ordered him to stop. At that spot, the officer who originally saw him identified him as the man taking items out of the van.
Kurensky was charged with fifth-degree larceny, third-degree criminal trespass, third-degree burglary and criminal attempt at third-degree burglary. His bond initially was set at $25,000 and if he did post bond, he was scheduled to appear Oct. 31 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
