Three, including child, held at gunpoint in robbery at North Berwick home

By Amanda Beland, Foster's Daily Democrat

NORTH BERWICK, Maine — Three residents were held at gunpoint early Friday morning as two suspects robbed their home.

Two suspects, dressed all in black, kicked open a door at a residence on Beech Ridge Road at 3:25 a.m. on Friday morning, according to North Berwick Police Chief Stephen Peasley. The suspects, wearing ski masks, held the two adults and one 6-year-old child at gunpoint as they stole cash and prescription drugs. One shot was fired into a wall during the incident. No one was injured in the invasion.

Chief Peasley declined to go into detail about the amount of cash and types of prescription drugs stolen. Police believe the home invasion was an isolated incident and have had no similar crimes in town.

According to Peasley, the residents of the invaded home have not been “100 percent cooperative” in telling the police everything about the incident. Therefore, police are looking for as much information from the public as possible.

Anyone with any information on the home invasion is asked to contact the North Berwick Police Department at (207) 676-2751.
