NEW BRITAIN - Police believe a man who fell from his window at the Burritt House apartments to the sidewalk early Monday morning likely took his own life.

The man, described as older, was discovered on the sidewalk at 67 W. Main St. around 5:30 a.m. Monday morning, with a broken window screen lying nearby.

He was not breathing when police arrived and was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at a local hospital.

No foul play is suspected, but the case is being investigated as an untimely death. Police are withholding the identity of the man until his family can be notified.

Police came to their conclusion after evaluating the scene and conducting their initial investigation.
