GROTON, Conn. (WTNH)– A second arrest has been made in a violent Groton home invasion that happened last week.
On Tuesday, at around 10 a.m., Groton Police arrested 25-year-old Albert Goss and charged him with Home Invasion, Conspiracy to commit Home Invasion, Robbery, and Burglary.
During his arrest, a struggle ensued with officers. Goss and four police officers were taken to Lawrence and Memorial Hospital for treatment of their injuries.
Police say the arrest stems from the home invasion that happened just before 10 p.m. on Wednesday October 4th, at 91 Buddington Road. Police received a report of two masked men dressed in dark clothing who had entered the home holding a firearm and a baseball bat. Various gaming systems, cash, and cell phones were reported stolen while the four occupants were held at gunpoint.
Police say a woman in the home, who is in her late 40s or early 50s, was also struck numerous times with the baseball bat. She has since been treated and released from Lawrence and Memorial Hospital.
Last Thursday, Groton Police arrested a 16-year-old boy on home invasion and assault charges for his role in the break-in. Police are not identifying him because he is a minor.
Police say Goss additionally had three outstanding warrants and more charges are expected from his actions during his arrest.
