Danbury Police charged Noah Benjamin Lubitz, 19, of Ridgefield, with public indecency, second-degree criminal trespass, risk of injury to a minor, breach of peace, sixth-degree larceny, third-degree burglary and criminal attempt to commit third-degree burglary after an incident at 1:47 a.m. Saturday on South Street.
Police said a couple and their infant were watching a movie at 2 a.m. when their motion detector light went on in the back yard. The homeowner went outside to check, and saw a naked man trying to punch his way into the homeowner's car. The naked man was in a state of arousal, and had wrapped a sheet around his hand as he tried to punch in the car window. When homeowner tried to tackle him, the man broke free, and tried to run into the house, but the homeowner's wife stopped him at the door. She was holding their child. Police discovered Lubitz had broken into the family's shed, which is where he found the sheet. He was charged and held on a $10,000 bond for an appearance in Danbury Superior Court Monday.
According to the state Judicial Department, Lubitz had been charged on Friday with interfering with a police officer and with second-degree breach of peace. Those charges are pending.
In a second, earlier incident, Lubitz has a case from Ridgefield also pending in court. He was charged on June 11 with first-degree larceny, third-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary. These charges are pending.
