HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Police are investigating a violent home invasion that happened in Hamden late Wednesday night.
The incident occurred around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, at a home on Augur Street.
Upon arrival, police met with a 38-year-old male resident who was bleeding profusely from the head.
Police said the victim, who they say was uncooperative, was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment.
After investigating, police determined that four masked individuals forced entry into the home through a first floor window.
Police said once the suspects were inside, they confronted a 34-year-old female resident. They duct-taped her mouth, hands, and feet while pointing a gun at her head.
According to police, approximately 20 minutes later the male resident returned home and was struck in the head with a porcelain object.
The individuals then fled the residence after taking electronic equipment, police said.
Based on preliminary investigation, police said the home invasion does not appear to be a random act. Police believe the male resident who was assaulted was specifically targeted by the four suspects.
Anyone with information is asked to call Hamden Police Detectives at (203) 230-4040.
