    New Haven police released images of a man seen abandoning a car stolen during 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.  They stole several items and drove off in the victims' car.

    On Thursday, police released several images from a surveillance camera of a man abandoning the car behind the building on Henry Street.

    The question of safety was on the minds of several dozen at a special meeting of the Wooster Square Block Watch Thursday night. Residents met with police to talk about the recent break-ins and concerns.

    "Right now we're feeling pretty amazing in our space and now a little nervous about moving to the new space," said Jessica Lennington, who will be moving into a new home in Wooster Square that will be blocks from Tuesday's home invasion on Osborn Street.

    Investigators hope someone will recognize the man, who they describe as a suspect.

    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.
