A Hamden resident was seriously injured Wednesday night during a home invasion on Augur Street, according to police.
The incident was not random, according to Hamden Police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith.
"Based on the results of our preliminary investigation, the home invasion does not appear to be a random act," Smith said. "It appears that the male individual who was assaulted was specifically targeted by the four individuals."
Police got the report of the home invasion at abou 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night, Smith said.
When officers got there, they found the 38-year-old resident "bleeding profusely from the head," Smith said. Hamden Fire Rescue was called in to treat the victim at the scene, Smith said. The victim was "uncooperative," Smith said, and was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital.
The investigation found that four men wearing masks broke into the home through a first-floor window. They encountered a 34-year-old woman, Smith said, who they tied up with duct tape while holding her at gunpoint.
About a 20 minutes later the male resident returned home and one of the suspects hit him in the head with a porcelain object, Smith said. Before taking off, the four stole electronic equipment, Smith said.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detectives at 203-230-4040.
