Suspect falls from window while trying to evade police

A convicted felon has been seriously hurt after jumping out of a sixth-story window in Bridgeport in an attempt to evade police early this morning.

According to officials, the incident happened at around 12:30 a.m. at Charles Green Homes apartment complex near Washington and Highland avenues.

Police say 23-year-old Stefan Young was armed when he locked himself inside an empty apartment in Building 2. He then ditched his weapon and drugs, and tried to get into a fifth-floor window, but landed on a patio, according to officials.

Investigators say two other men were also arrested in connection with the incident.
