MANCHESTER, NH – At approximately 11:30 p.m. on June 29 officers responded to 24 Schuyler St. for a reported armed home invasion. A couple at home with their infant  heard a knock at their door. Two armed males forced entry into the apartment. One of the male suspects struck the male victim in the head with the pistol multiple times. He was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries.

The suspects were described as tall, thin black males. The suspects were wearing dark clothing with either masks or hoods concealing their faces. According to the victims, nothing was taken. The suspects were last seen running northerly from the area. A K-9 track was attempted with negative results due to the large amount of foot traffic in the area. This does not appear to be a random incident. Officers were able to obtain video footage of the assailants.
