BEDFORD, N.H. (AP) — Some residents attending a public meeting to address a recent home invasion in Bedford are concerned why it took about a half-hour for police to enter the home.

Police said Dr. Eduardo Quesada and his wife, Sonia, suffered serious injuries when they were attacked at their home on Nov. 24. Authorities are still searching for the attacker.

Police Chief John Bryfonski said Thursday that to be able to enter and secure a piece of property the size of the Quesada’s home takes a considerable force. He said police have to approach it under the assumption that they’re going to encounter deadly physical force. He said police have to have the numbers for that confrontation.

Quesada remained hospitalized Thursday with serious injuries.
