NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Police have a suspect in custody in connection with the death of a man whose body was discovered in a New Haven apartment building, where he was not a resident.
Shortly after 7:30 a.m. Sunday, police were called to the first floor of 216 Spring St., after receiving a report of a deceased male.
Upon arrival, police discovered a black man inside the rear apartment. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man has been identified as 49-year-old Anthony Stevenson. He is a New Haven resident, but police say he was not a resident of 216 Spring St.
Just before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, police said a 911 call was made from a man claiming to have been the victim of a stabbing. The man said he was in a house in the area of Washington Ave. and Spring St., but didn't provide an address.
Police said five officers were sent to the intersection and began searching for the victim. While officers were searching, numerous attempts were made to call the victim's phone, but no calls were answered.
According to police, they then sent an electronic signal to the victim's phone, but it was unsuccessful in pinpointing an exact location. It only provided a cell tower in the Long Wharf area as the tower that carried the call.
Officers interviewed people in the area, checked with local hospitals and EMS in an effort to find the victim.
Police said the victim's body was found inside the kitchen of the rear first floor apartment at 216 Spring St.
According to police, the person who reported finding the victim said that they saw the body as they walked by the house. However, police said the victim was not visible from the sidewalk.
Monday morning, officers were given details about the investigation and primary suspect, identified as 44-year-old Semmion Watson.
Police said Watson is the tenant of the apartment where Stevenson was found stabbed to death.
According to police, officers spotted Watson in the Sherman Avenue area Monday and he was taken into custody without incident.
