WILTON, Maine — Police are investigating a home invasion on Birch Street that sent an 18-year-old to the hospital.
A young woman was assaulted during a confrontation at about 10 p.m. when two people came into the home, Wilton Police Chief Heidi Wilcox said.
Police received a 911 call about a burglary on Birch Street. The caller reported that an 18-year-old in the home had been assaulted during a confrontation with intruders.
The victim suffered minor injuries and was taken by ambulance to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington, where she was treated and released, Wilcox said.
The suspects were described as being a slender woman, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall, in her late teens, and a 6-foot-tall man of average build in his late teens.
The victim said the suspects left the home while she was in a bedroom being protected by the family dog, who bit the man on his right shin.
The girl was home alone and thought family members were returning when she found the couple had entered through an unlocked door.
Nothing was taken from the home.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department attempted to track the two suspects with a dog.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Wilton Police Department at 645-3876.
