**Crime Alert**

Early this morning at about 5:15am police were called to a residence on Walker Hill Rd. The homeowner called police after he was awoken by some unknown person in his home who had forced entry into the house by pushing in a window. The suspect ran from the home on foot when confronted by the homeowner. The only description was that the intruder was wearing a hoodie and jeans.

Detectives and Evidence Techs were called in to process the scene. The K9 Unit and Drone Unit were also called to the scene to search the wooded areas around the residence. Police are also currently talking with neighbors.

“These type of incidents are extremely rare in Newtown and can be extremely unnerving to area residents, but I can promise all resources will be focused on identifying a suspect. Police will also be directing high visibility patrols in this neighborhood.”

Lt. Aaron Bahamonde
