Police Seek Suspects in Violent New London Home Invasion

New London police are searching for a group of people who broke into a home on Prest Street and attacked the residents on New Year's Eve.

Police said they received a call just before 11:30 p.m. from a person at L+M Hospital reporting a home invasion at 7 Prest St. Investigators say that two or three attackers forced their way into an apartment when the occupants opened the door.

One attacker struck a victim on the head, causing non-life-threatening injury, police said. The attackers then tied up the three people in the home, threatened and robbed them.

Police said the attack does not appear random.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information should contact the New London Police Department at 860-447-5269 ext. 0 or the New London Tips 411 system by texting NLPDTip plus the information to Tip411 (847411).
