Watertown police have arrested a New York man suspected in an armed home invasion in the Mount Fair neighborhood on Dec. 6. 2011. 

Today, police arrested David Davis, 22, of Brooklyn, New York, who they said has prior arrests in New York for robbery.

Police said the victims, a husband and wife, were returning home from their business in Waterbury and had pulled into their garage when David approached their car, knocked on the window and demanded that they open the doors or they would be shot, police said.   

One of the victims began honking the horn and the intruders fled.

As detectives investigated, they determined that David and his accomplices were waiting for the victims, intending to steal proceeds from their Waterbury business, police said.

Detective Kevin Ferrucci identified David as a suspect from the Waterbury store’s video surveillance.

Police reached out to The U.S. Marshals Service and the New York Police Department’s Fugitive Task Force and took Davis into custody.

He is being held on $1 million and will be arraigned in Waterbury Superior Court on Nov. 21.
Davis was charged with home invasion in the first degree, first-degree robbery, criminal attempt at larceny in the second degree, second-degree threatening and first-degree reckless endangerment.

Police continue to investigate and expect additional arrests.
