Woman, 3 Teens Charged in Hamden Home Invasion, Assault

A 37-year-old woman and three teenagers are facing charges after police say they assaulted a Hamden man, stabbed his sister and forced their way into her apartment late last month.

Shontae Walker, of Hamden, was charged with second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit second-degree assault, assault on an elderly person, home invasion, third-degree assault and interfering with an officer.

Three minors – ages 15, 16 and 17 – were also arrested.

Police said they were part of a group that got into an argument with a 41-year-old man and his 38-year-old sister at 306 Pine Rock Avenue in Hamden on July 25.

According to police, several members of the group held the man back while others attacked and stabbed his sister. The attackers forced their way into the female victim's apartment and continued assaulting her before running off.

At some point during the confrontation, the victim's mother, who is in her 60s, was pushed to the ground, according to police.

Police said they arrived to find the woman suffering from stab wounds to her face and arm. She was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Walker was held on $2,500 bond and is due in court Aug. 4. It's not clear whether she has an attorney.

The teenagers are all due in New Haven Juvenile Court on Aug. 6.
