Correction: Trespassing Arrest-School story

September 1, 2018

SALISBURY, Conn. (AP) — In a story Aug. 31 about a trespassing arrest, The Associated Press reported erroneously that police found a man hiding on the porch of a girl’s dormitory. He was found on the porch of an administrative building at the school.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Man arrested for hiding on a porch at an exclusive school

A man once convicted of kidnapping in Massachusetts has been arrested after police found him hiding on the porch of an administrative building at the exclusive Hotchkiss School in Connecticut

SALISBURY, Conn. (AP) — A man once convicted of kidnapping in Massachusetts has been arrested after police found him hiding on the porch of an administrative building at the exclusive Hotchkiss School in Connecticut.

The Hartford Courant reports police discovered 59-year-old Alexander Gimpelson on the porch at about 1 a.m. Friday. He was charged with first-degree criminal degree trespassing, attempted burglary and disorderly conduct.

The school was not in session, although some students were on campus.

School security spotted Gimpelson on campus and told him to leave. Hours later they found his abandoned car and notified state police.

Police don’t believe Gimpelson gained access to school buildings. His most recent address was in Queens, New York. The paper said Gimpelson was previously convicted in Brookline, Massachusetts, for assault and battery and kidnapping.
