EAST WINDSOR, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – Three Springfield, Massachusetts men are under arrest in connection with a home invasion Tuesday in East Windsor.
Police say the trio rang the doorbell and knocked on the door of a home on Kreyssig Road around 12:30 p.m., and when no one answered, they broke in. A resident was home at the time and hid in an upstairs bedroom as he called 911.
The victim gave dispatchers a description of a suspect vehicle and officers stopped the vehicle as it was leaving the scene, said police.
Under arrest are Luis Velazquez, 37; Wilson Zayas, 37; and Jose Torres, 31. All face charges of home invasion, second-degree burglary, criminal possession of a firearm, third-degree larceny, first-degree criminal mischief, theft of a firearm, and carrying weapons on a motor vehicle.
Police say the house was selected at random and that one of the suspects knew the area from riding ATVs in the area. Detectives have yet to process the suspects’ getaway car, but believe there could be items inside connecting the trio to other burglaries.
The three suspects were held on $750,000 bond pending arraignment Wednesday in Enfield Superior Court.
