(New Britain, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – On April 7th at 9:57 P.M., the New Britain Public Safety Telecommunications Center received a 9-1-1 call from an anonymous complainant reporting a physical domestic occurring inside of 48 North Mountain Rd unit #203. The complainant reported it sounded as if someone was being thrown around inside the apartment. Officers responded, knocked on the door repeatedly but received no response. Based on the information furnished by the complainant, entry was forced into the residence.
Upon entering, officers conducted a protective sweep and located a female victim in the master bedroom with an apparent head injury. No other victims or suspects were located within the home.
Officers requested emergency medical services for the victim. New Britain Emergency Medical Services responded, evaluated the victim and reported she had suffered an apparent gunshot wound to her head. The victim, whom is not being identified at this time, was presumed dead at the scene by New Britain E.M.S.
While conducting the sweep, officers observed several photographs of two young children in the residence as well as discarded diapers in the garbage leading them to believe there may be children residing in the home. Officers were able to determine the whereabouts of one child but a second child could not be accounted for.
Initial investigation identified a potential suspect as Patrick MILES DOB 9/21/80, who was suspected to have fled to New York City with a two year old child. This prompted an Amber Alert. The child was located unharmed in New York City at approximately 4 A.M on this date. The female child was evaluated at an area hospital as a precaution and has since been returned to family. It was reported to New York Investigators that the child was dropped off in New York by Patrick Miles who was then left the area.
A search warrant was obtained for 48 North Mountain Road and was served with the assistance of the Connecticut State Police Major Crimes Unit. A warrant for Miles arrest is being sought at this time. New Britain Investigators are being assisted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the New Britain State’s Attorney’s Office and the New York City Police Department.
Anyone who has information about this incident or on the whereabouts of Miles is asked to call the New Britain Police Department at 860-826-3000. Anonymous tips can be left on the tip line at 860-826-3199 or online at NewBritainPolice.org.
