Manchester police investigate home invasion on Merrimack Street
MANCHESTER — Police are investigating a reported home invasion shortly after noon Wednesday at a Merrimack Street address.
Police said a 19-year-old woman reported hearing a knock on the door of the two-level apartment, and when she asked who was there, a man answered: "Police."
When she opened the door part way, she said, she saw two men, one holding up what appeared to be an ID card.
But once the door was open part way, she said, the men pushed it open and entered the apartment. They pushed her, with her six-month-old in her arms, into a first-level bathroom before making their way upstairs.
She said she fled to a nearby restaurant and called police. There were no injuries, and police said it does not appear anything was taken from the residence.
Police searched the building and surrounding area but did not locate the two men. The woman described one as a white male, 50s, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8, thin build, full white beard and mustache, wearing a black knit hat, black top and green wind pants. The other man was described as white, clean-shaven, about 30 years old, 5-foot-9, 250 pounds, wearing a black knit hat and black clothing.
