STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) - Police in Stamford are dealing with their second home invasion in less than a week, and this one has a strange family twist.
WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau On The Story
In the latest incident, police say a 45-year-old broke into the home of his mother on the west side of the city on Monday night.
Police Chief Jon Fontneau says Todd Blackman is accused of restraining his 72-year-old mother.
“He had tied her up with stockings and socks and he tied her to the post of the bed,” Fontneau told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau.
Fontneau says the woman was able to free herself and call police, who arrived in time to arrest her son.
“He took $322 from her purse,” he said.
In another home invasion case on Friday, Stamford police charged two men who they say terrorized a family on Hope Street.
Apparently looking for drug money, they’re accused of picking up an infant in her crib and holding a gun to the child’s head, all while ordering the family to turn over their valuables.
Police are still looking for one man in that home invasion.
