New London police are searching for the people responsible for the home invasion during which a 91-year-old man was threatened with a stun gun.
Police said the 91-year-old victim called authorities around 11:20 a.m. Nov. 27 to report that he was robbed at his home on Pacific Street.
The victim told police he opened the front door after hearing a knock. Initially, he didn’t see anyone there, but was soon confronted by two masked men demanding money and valuables. The men entered his home and held a stun gun to the victim’s neck, police said.
The suspects spent several minutes in the victim’s home, then fled. It’s not clear what was stolen during the encounter. They’re described as Hispanic or black men, both tall and slim, wearing dark clothing and ski masks. Police said the suspects are about 20 years old.
