10 days after home invasion, Bedford neighbors want answers on attack
BEDFORD - Some neighbors near the site of a reported home invasion say they are not happy with the small amount of information they have received from police.
"I can speak for a majority of (the neighborhood) that we're just not getting any answers, no answers at all," said a Wallace Road resident who asked that his name not be used.
Elliot Hospital anesthesiologist Dr. Eduardo Quesada and his wife, Sonia, were found bloodied the night of Nov. 24 in their upscale home at 7 Proclamation Court. Their 2-year-old was unharmed.
Police said they were told a man at least 6 feet tall who wore a black ski mask and dark clothing confronted the couple inside their home about 10 p.m.
Quesada, 52, suffered a serious head injury and remains in the hospital.
Bedford Police Chief Jon Bryfonski said investigators cannot give out information that would harm the investigation. But the Wallace Road resident said he believes he has the right to know if the neighborhood is secure and called for more "heartfelt" communication from police. He said his children are now sleeping in his home's living room, where they feel safer.
"Me and my wife are just so scared and paranoid in a way, because we don't want them in their rooms," he said. "It happened in our backyard."
Bryfonski said Monday that Bedford's crime index of 52 incidents per 100,000 inhabitants is very low (based on 2010 data) when compared to similarly-sized communities. Burglaries this year are below 2011 levels, he said. But he acknowledged that statistics don't make people feel safe.
"Therefore, it is imperative for the Bedford Police Department to assure our residents that everything possible is being done to identify, arrest and successfully prosecute the person(s) responsible for this crime," Bryfonski said.
Tom Tamulevich lives on Spring Hill Road, parallel to Proclamation Court.
He said he considers the Bedford Police Department one of the finest in the state.
"We had Mont Vernon a couple years ago," he said, referring to the 2009 murder of Kimberly Cates and brutal attack on her then 11-year-old daughter. "That was horrific. We have this now. That's horrific. But we'll see if the (perpetrator) profiles are any different or if there's something else going on - we just don't know."
Asked if he was frightened, Tamulevich said no.
"That guy ain't coming back ... We're all at DEFCON 5 over here," he said.
