POWNAL — Authorities say a 34-year-old man from Bennington is facing multiple charges, and another man is still wanted after a burglary in Pownal.

On August 21, authorities were notified of a burglary at the Burdick Trailer Park.

Police say that two suspects broke into an occupied dwelling armed with weapons.

During the break-in, one of the victims at the home was hit with a blunt object on the top of the head.

Police say the victim suffered a head injury and was transported to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

In addition, the suspects stole personal items and a cell phone from the juvenile, which prevented them from calling emergency services.

Police allege that Douglas Marsh was one of the two men who broke into the home.

He faces charges of assault and robbery, burglary, unlawful restraint, and interference with access to emergency services.

The second suspect remains at large in the investigation.

Yesterday, police said they traveled to Marsh’s home in Bennington at around 6:40 p.m.

He was placed under arrest and transported to the Shaftsbury barracks for processing.

After processing, he was released on court-ordered conditions.
