Police are investigating a New Canaan home invasion and looking into whether it is connected to others in Fairfield County.
A man’s hands and feet were bound during a home invasion in New Canaan on Saturday night and police are still looking for the people who broke in.
Police went to Ponus Ridge around 10 p.m. to investigate a report of a home invasion in progress and found the resident on the second floor. His hands and feet were tied up with rope, police said.
The victim told police that the people who committed the home invasion fled when they saw New Canaan Police approaching.
On Saturday, officers, including K-9 units, searched the area but the trail ended on a nearby side street, where the vehicle used was believed to be located.
The resident was not seriously injured, police said.
Police collected evidence at the scene and will use forensic analysis to help identify leads.
Police said they are working with additional area law enforcement agencies to determine if this home invasion is related to similar home invasions over the last year.
The Advertiser also reports that two other communities to experience similar crimes are Greenwich and Westchester, New York.
On July 24, two armed masked men broke into a Round Hill Home, restrained a woman and stole jewelry, the Greenwich Patch reported.
