Branford – Larcenist Arrested Following Multiple Incidents

A motorist suspected of carjacking and assault was arrested yesterday.

31-year-old Manuel Aviles was arrested yesterday following several incidents that started in Branford last Wednesday. Aviles was involved in a crash near the intersection of North Main and North Ivy Streets. He fled the accident site and attempted to carjack another vehicle. This led to other successful carjacking attempts as Aviles tried to avoid arrest. He ended up in New Haven and was apprehended after a failed attempt to carjack a vehicle driven by a female motorist. The victim was able to fend off Aviles but was injured in the process. The suspect is currently facing multiple charges, including first-degree larceny, attempted larceny, robbery by carjacking, and third-degree assault.

Motorists injured in road-related incidents can be involved in various circumstances aside from car collisions, and this is an example of that. It’s important to take note of this because people injured due to reckless or negligent behavior, regardless of circumstances, may have the option of filing for damages if legal experts deem it as an appropriate course of action.
