Masked home invaders broke into a house in Brookline, Massachusetts, and assaulted a person inside during what authorities have described as an armed home invasion early Tuesday morning, according to the city’s police department.
The Brookline Police Department said in a news release that its officers responded to the armed home invasion on Warren Street shortly before 2:30 a.m.
Investigators believe a gun was fired during the home invasion.
Police are looking for two people.
The home invaders got into the house from the second floor balcony, and there were two people in the home at the time, according to Lt. Derek Hayes with the Brookline Police Department.
The person assaulted was a 61-year-old man, who was taken to the hospital as a precaution and for lacerations to his head, police said.
There’s a search ongoing for those involved, and there remained a heavy police presence on Warren Street and Walnut Street throughout much of Tuesday morning.
“I feel bad for them,” neighbor Harold Kotlar said. “They seem like nice enough people, quiet, to themselves, respectful.”
No one has been taken into custody yet in connection with the incident.
