You need the ActiveConnection object.
That is, obtain ActiveConnections property from /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager.
Obtain the Connection object with the ID you want
Find the ActiveConnection whose Connection property is the Connection
object you found
For each device in the Devices property, invoke Deactivate.

(btw, can't you just use nmcli?)
