Man Charged in Hamden Home Invasion and Assault

An Enfield man has been arrested in connection with a home invasion and attack in Hamden. 

Police responded to a home on Arch Street around 10 p.m. on Thursday to investigate the report of a robbery with injuries. 

The resident, a 63 year-old man, answered the door after hearing a knock and saw a masked man dressed in dark clothing, holding a knife. 

The masked man forced his way into the home, punched the victim in the face, cut his arms several times and stole $540 from the victim’s clothing, police said. 

Police arrested Kenneth Mckay, 23, of Enfield, on Sunday and charged him with home invasion, first-degree robbery and second-degree assault on an elderly person. 

Mckay and the victim appear to know each other, according to police.

Mckay, who was detained on a $250,000 bond, is scheduled to appear in court in Meriden on June 17.
