ASHLAND (CBS) — Ashland Police arrested two people after an armed home invasion on Wednesday. Homeowners on Buckley Avenue were woken up by the sound of a break-in around 1:50 a.m. on Wednesday.
Police said the armed suspects got in through an unlocked window.
The homeowners attempted to fight the men, causing the suspects to run out of the house, according to police. One of the residents was injured and needed to be taken to a local hospital.
The suspects allegedly got into a car parked nearby. Police later determined that the car was stolen from Worcester.
Police arrived one minute after the homeowners called 911. Officers and K9 Ajaxx searched the neighborhood for evidence but were unable to find the men.
One suspect was arrested later on Wednesday and the second, a juvenile, was arrested in Framingham on Thursday.
“These types of crimes just don’t occur in Ashland. I mean, there’s no invisible dome over our heads, obviously, over our community. But these types of crimes don’t occur, so we’ve done a lot of outreach with the community. Yesterday, myself and some other officers went door to door in the neighborhood, talking to the neighbors to just reassure them,” said Police Chief Vincent Alfano.
The identities of the suspects have not been released at this time.
