Police Investigating Home Invasion in Winsted Make Arrest

A Torrington man was charged and police expect to make more arrests.

State police have arrested a suspect in a home invasion and assault in Winsted on Wednesday night. 

Police responded to Rockwell Street just before 10 p.m. to investigate a disturbance and then learned that there had been a home invasion and the intruders ran from the house before state troopers arrived. 

The residents had been assaulted during the home invasion. One sustained minor injuries, while the other suffered injuries that are not life-threatening and was transported to the hospital. 

State Troopers and K9 teams from Troop B-North Canaan responded to the scene and assisted with the investigation. At the request of Winsted police, detectives also responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. 

State police identified Elias Estremera, 45, of Torrington, as the suspect and charged him with home invasion, first-degree burglary, first-degree assault, third-degree assault, first-degree robbery, first-degree threatening, sixth-degree larceny and breach of peace. 

He did not enter a plea on Thursday and the case has been continued to June 15.

Police said this does not appear to be a random incident and the general public is not in any danger. 

Police said they expect to make more arrests.
