1 min read

EAST HAVEN — A dramatic home invasion took place on March 17 when two armed men attempted to steal a high-value cat from a residence on the 180 block of Thompson Street.

The East Haven Public Safety Dispatch Center received a 911 call around 3:46 p.m. reporting the incident.

The suspects had fled the scene in a blue BMW by the time officers arrived.

According to the residents, the two male suspects tried to enter through a rear slider door.

Despite attempts to keep the intruders out, one suspect kicked through the glass pane to gain entry.

Once inside, they brandished a firearm and demanded the resident’s cat.

A scuffle ensued, and the residents were able to fend off the attackers, who then escaped without the cat.

East Haven Police Investigative Services Division detectives arrived at the scene and took charge of the investigation.

Their efforts led them to Hamden, where they found and seized the suspects’ blue BMW for evidence processing.

Investigators determined that the incident was targeted, involving individuals who knew each other, rather than a random attack.

No injuries were reported, and detectives are currently pursuing several leads.

The investigation is ongoing as authorities search for the suspects.
