You can accomplish this with a script that runs the two commands:

  screen -X screen
  screen -r

The problem is that the reattach will not go to the newly created window
on its own; it'll display the screen you last detached from, unless you
use -p to preselect a window.  This might work:

  screen -X screen -t $WINDOW
  screen -r -p $WINDOW

but only if you don't have your shell changing window titles for you.
(Mine does.)
