KILLINGLY, Conn. (WTNH) — State police are investigating a home invasion in Killingly Friday afternoon.
Just after 1:30 p.m., state police received a report of a disturbance at a home on Birchwood Drive in Killingly. Upon arrival, troopers discovered one victim with minor injuries who was brought to the hospital for evaluation.
According to state police, it was reported that two to three people entered the home, assaulted the victim and stole items from the residence.
Police said they left the scene in what is believed to be a black Nissan sedan with tinted windows and Massachusetts registration.
State police said the investigation is in its early stages. They believe there is no immediate threat to the public at this time.
But neighbors are still on edge.
“Petrifying because I can’t tell you how many times I’ve told people I feel like I live in such a safe area, the end of a cul-de-sac. Literally when people drive down here, it’s like what are you doing here because other than coming down to these houses at the end of the road, there’s really no reason to be down here,” said Jessica Bliss.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Lewis at Troop D at (860) 779-4900.
