FAIRFIELD — A Tunxis Hill Road man, already in custody on charges that include home invasion and possession of child pornography, is facing more charges.
Eric Kusheba, 36, was arraigned in state Superior Court in Bridgeport Wednesday on a warrant charging him with criminal possession of ammunition and body armor. He was held on a $5,000 bond. Police found the items in his apartment while executing a search warrant.
Kusheba, who previously served two years on assault and bomb-making charges, was arrested Sept. 22 when he was found in the bedroom of a his teenaged neighbor, who was sleeping, police said. Kusheba was dressed only in a bathrobe and t-shirt. In the pocket of his robe, police found a pair of brass knuckles.
Police found images of young girls in sexually explicit positions on his cell phone, as well as a video clip of a man masturbating over a pair of children’s underpants. A similar pair of underpants was found on Kusheba’s dresser. He does not have any children.
Kusheba pleaded not guilty to home invasion, carrying a dangerous weapon, third-degree possession of child pornography, voyeurism, and second-degree stalking.
He told police he saw two people walking around his neighbor’s home and threw on his robe to go out and investigate. Kusheba claims he found the front door open and went inside to make sure everything was OK and found himself in the daughter’s bedroom.
