NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A New Haven man is suing the city and police over claims officers mistakenly raided his home and tied him up for two hours last year when they were instead looking for a neighbor.

The New Haven Register reports (https://bit.ly/1DbnAfN ) that Joseph Adams also accuses city police officers of mocking him for being gay, injuring him and damaging his apartment. He filed suit in U.S. District Court.

The lawsuit names the city of New Haven, the Police Department, Chief Dean Esserman and unidentified police officers.

City spokesman Laurence Grotheer said New Haven officials will respond “at the appropriate time.”

Attorney Max Rosenberg of Stratford, who represents Adams, said police offered to fix the damage to his client’s apartment the next day, but failed to follow through.

He says Adams was never charged or incarcerated.
