    New Haven police located a car connected to a home invasion.

    Officers found a gray Dodge Intrepid behind a building at 181 Henry Street on Wednesday morning.

    The car was stolen during a home invasion on Osborn Street Tuesday afternoon.

    Two masked intruders went into a residence on Osborn Street and tied up two adults who were inside, officials said.

    "People know each other around here and look out for each other so it was very unusual and alarming to hear that that happened," said Chris Randall, a  neighbor of the  victims.

    The intruders stole belongings, including car keys, and fled in the owner’s 2004 gray Dodge Intrepid, police said.

    This is the second home invasion reported in New Haven this month.

    On Monday, May 6, two men invaded a home on Huntington Street, held two women captive, tied them up and stole a car belonging to one resident, police said.  The home is just two miles from Tuesday's home invasion.

    The victims in that home invasion were 71 and 58.
