    Hartford police have arrested three suspects in a violent home invasion after a chase that ended in a crash Tuesday evening.

    Hartford police said they responded to Nelton Way on Tuesday evening to investigate a home invasion and the victims said the assailants forced their way into the apartment and assaulted one of the victims with a firearm in front of two children.

    After briefly rummaging through the apartment, the men got into the car a getaway driver was waiting in and fled, according to police.

    The victims gave detailed descriptions of the assailants and the vehicle they got away in and patrol officers transmitted that information while treating the victims.

    Members of the street crimes unit saw a vehicle matching the description at Martin and Westland streets and tried to stop it, but the driver fled until losing control of the car and crashing into a pole at Vine Street and Keney Terrace, according to police.
