Police ask for tips in home invasion

By Bill Trotter, BDN Staff

CASTINE, Maine — State police are looking for help in investigating a home invasion and are willing to reward anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

State police announced Monday that they are offering a $1,500 reward to anyone who helps them out.

The incident occurred earlier this fall, on Sept. 27, on Wadsworth Cove Road in this Hancock County town, according to police. At the time, police reported that a man believed to be in his 20s entered the home around 10:20 p.m. and demanded money. The man assaulted two women, one of whom suffered minor injuries, police said.

The man then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, state police have said. No weapons were involved in the incident.

Lt. Christopher Coleman of the Maine State Police said Monday that police have run down their leads but have not identified any suspects in the invasion. Police think the man acted alone in the incident.

“We don’t think the victims know who came into their house,” Coleman said. “We don’t think anyone else was involved.”

At the time, state police described the invader as being approximately 24 years old, fair-skinned, heavy-set, and about 5 feet 8 inches tall with strawberry blond hair. He was believed to be wearing a brown, long-sleeve hooded sweatshirt and gray work pants.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Maine State Police at 800-432-7381.
