Fairfield Man Tied Up, Beaten in Home Invasion

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A Sacred Heart University student was tied up and beaten in a home invasion on Reef Road Wednesday night. Police are looking for two suspects, both white males who were wearing all black.
The 22-year-old male victim told police the duo came in through the unlocked back door of the house he rents on the 1000 block of Reef Road. One of the invaders got him in a headlock, and both tied his hands behind his back. They then punched and kicked him.
The suspects took electronics and jewelry and left out the back door. The victim told police the incident lasted about five minutes. Shortly afterward the man was able to get free and call police. When emergency responders arrived, he was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport for treatment.
Officers conducted a neighborhood canvass using a K-9 unit and thermal imaging cameras but could not find the burglars. They were described as white males, both with medium builds. One was about 5-feet-7, the other 6-feet-2. Both were wearing all black and carried black backpacks. One of the men wore a mask.
This is the third Fairfield home invasion in the last three months. Fairfield Police have made arrests in incidents that occurred on Park Avenue and Lenox Road in September, so they do not believe those two are related to this incident. But Chief Gary MacNamara said Thursday that, like those crimes, this one most likely was not a random act. READ MORE: http://www.thedailyfairfield.com/news/fairfield-man-tied-beaten-home-invasion
