GREENWICH, Conn. -- Two Stamford teens were arrested Monday after smashing open the rear door of a home on Halsey Drive in Greenwich. Police say it is likely more arrests will follow.
A 16-year-old boy who was asleep in the house during the break-in, told police he heard a loud noise coming from the kitchen and when he went to investigate he encountered two teenagers who had broken the door with a rock, according to Lt. Kraig Gray, spokesman for the department. The suspects immediately fled. The teen then called 911 with a description of the suspects.
Officers responded to the area and found several youths matching the suspects description on Havemeyer Lane near the Stamford town line. The suspects fled and police from Greenwich and Stamford pursued them on foot. No one was injured during the incident.
Keon Salmond, 19, of 138 Connecticut Avenue and a 15-year-old were charged with burglary, criminal attempt at burlary, and criminal mischief. The 15-year-old was additionally charged with interfering with a police officer, and Salmond was charged with attempted criminal mischief.
Salmond was held on a $5,000 bond and is due in court Aug. 8. The teen suspect was released on a promise to appear in court on Aug. 16.
