Mass. man indicted on Windham home invasion

BRENTWOOD — A Massachusetts man faces kidnapping charges for allegedly breaking into a Windham woman’s home, binding her wrists and pointing a 12-gauge shotgun at her.

Luis Carvalho, 31, of Fourth Street in Taunton, Mass., was indicted on six charges for the April 15 home invasion with an unnamed partner, according to court documents released Thursday.

No one else has yet been charged in the case.

Carvalho and his partner brought gloves and masks with them and started banging on the door about 12:30 a.m., police said. The woman called 911. The men then broke a window and got in the Glance Road home, according to prosecutors.

The woman struggled with her attackers before being restrained with zip ties, police said. Windham police responded to the home, but the suspects had already fled.

One took off in a car in the driveway while another fled on foot, police said. Police pursued the car until it crashed near the intersection of Romans Road, police said.

Carvalho was arrested around 2:25 a.m. near Cobblestone Road. Police continued to search for the second suspect until about 5 a.m. but couldn’t find him. Police have not identified which man fled in the vehicle or on foot.

Carvalho was barred from possessing a firearm due to a felony conviction in Massachusetts, according to indictments. He was charged with being a felon in possession of a weapon for allegedly carrying the shotgun.

Carvalho was convicted of assault with a dangerous weapon on Oct. 11, 2005, in Suffolk County, Mass., court records say.

The kidnapping and burglary charges are class A felonies, punishable by up to 7Ż to 15 years in state prison. Three other charges are punishable by 3Ż to 7 years in prison, if Caravalho is convicted.

He is being held at the Rockingham County jail in Brentwood.

He will be arraigned on the charges later this month in Rockingham County Superior Court.
