WINSTED, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut State Police have announced that the Winsted Police Department have arrested a suspect involved in a home invasion that occurred in Winsted on Wednesday.
State Police detectives from Western District Major Crime (WDMC) along with State Troopers, Winsted Police, and K9 teams from Troop B-North Canaan have been investigating the incident. At approximately 9:57 p.m., the Winsted Police Department responded to a reported disturbance at 111 Rockwell St. in their town.
Upon arrival, Winsted Police initiated an investigation. Winsted Police determined the occupants of the residence were victims of a home invasion and assaulted by unknown suspects. The suspects then ran from the residence prior to police arrival. One victim sustained minor injuries, and a second victim was transported to the hospital for the evaluation of non-life threatening injuries.
Through the course of the investigation, investigators identified and located one suspect. Elias Estremera, 45-year-old of Torrington, was taken into custody and transported to Winsted Police Department where he was processed and held on a $500,000 bond pending his court date Thursday at Litchfield Superior Court.
Estremera has been charged with home invasion, burglary first-degree, assault first-degree, assault third-degree, robbery first-degree, threatening first-degree, larceny sixth-degree, and breach of peace.
Police say the incident does not appear to be random, and the general public is not in any danger. WDMC anticipates additional arrests will be made in the future.
