Police on routine patrol at the Roodner Court public housing complex found Keon Salmond, 21, of Bridgeport there and arrested him on charges of trespassing and illegally carrying a dangrous weapon, Norwalk police said.
Police gave this account (an accusation not proven in court) of the matter:
At 9:39 p.m. Sunday, police saw Salmond in the complex and asked him what he was doing there. Salmond said he was visiting a man and named him, but that man is not a resident of Roodner Court.
Police also found Salmond had brass knuckles in his pocket. In the past, Salmond had been convicted of second-degree burglary and violation of probation.
Salmond, of Iranistan Avenue in Bridgeport, was initially held on $5,000 bond and was scheduled to appear Oct. 25 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
