NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)- Police are looking for two suspects accused of breaking into a home on Welton Street in New Haven.
The victims, Angel Rodriguez and Carmen Cruz, each 69 years old, told officers they’d woken up to the sound of breaking glass coming from the kitchen.The two went to see what was going on. As they entered the room, they were confronted by two masked strangers who’d entered through the back door. One was black and the other, either black or Hispanic. Both men held pistols.
The suspects pointed their guns at the victims while yelling, “Where’s the money… where’s the money”? One forced the couple into a bedroom while his accomplice searched the rest of the apartment for valuables.
After taking only a cell phone, the perpetrators fled from the home. The victims were not physically harmed.
Detectives are continuing to investigate this case and the developing evidence that suggests the invasion wasn’t random.
