Police nabbed a 46-year-old man in connection with a home invasion and robbery in which police believe the victim was targeted.
Greenwich Police received a call from a resident on Brook Avenue around 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug., 4, for a report of a home invasion and robbery, said Greenwich Lt. John Slusarz.
The victim told officers that he had been bound and beaten by a group of armed individuals who had forced their way into home demanding cash and money, Slusarz said.
Officers treated the victim's wounds and searched for suspects remaining in the area, he added.
Greenwich police processed the scene for evidence, interviewed witnesses and developed several leads on suspects. Investigators were able to quickly identify one of the suspected and obtained a warrant for his arrest, Slusarz said.
On Tuesday, Greenwich Police, along with help from the FBI and the NYPD arrested Hassan R. Washington, 46, of New York City, and charged him with home invasion, robbery, kidnapping, assault, and larceny.
Washington is being held in New York pending extradition to Connecticut.
"This remains an active investigation and additional arrests are expected," Slusarz said.
