STAMFORD-A Stratford man was arrested for allegedly breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s Stamford apartment early Tuesday morning.

Sgt. Kenneth Jarrett said just before 3 a.m. Tuesday, a woman called police to report that her ex-boyfriend Alfredo Reyes would not leave her apartment.

She said she woke up to find him in her bedroom after he was able to get through her front door. She said she thought he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol because he was acting irrationally.
