Two home invasions reported in Nashua
In once case, the robbers were armed with a handgun and hatchet.
The first robbery took place last Wednesday about 7:50 p.m., when two masked men entered an apartment and began assaulting an occupant, police said.
“They both had masks on, so our description is pretty limited,” Linehan said of the robbers. “We are still trying to determine why this house was targeted.”
According to police, at least one witness said they saw two masked men on Front Street following the reported home invasion.
The second robbery occurred about 3:20 p.m. on Saturday.
Police believe the second invasion was not random, but that the house was targeted.
“We are looking at the possibility that they are related,” Linehan said of the two home invasions.
Fletcher Street is a densely populated area downtown, Linehan said. He stressed that no children were inside either residences during the home invasions, which took place during daylight.
