CARIBOU, Maine — The Caribou Police Department on Thursday evening was seeking two people wanted for questioning in connection with a home invasion that took place early New Year’s Day.

One person has been arrested and charged with multiple crimes in connection with the case, Police Chief Michael Gahagan said Thursday.

Gahagan said the incident took place between 3 and 3:30 a.m. Jan. 1. According to Gahagan, three people forced their way into an apartment complex in the city and disabled the phones. They then assaulted the male and female occupants in front of a 6-year-old child who was inside the residence and made off with cell phones.

Information about the location of the complex was unavailable.

After an investigation, police arrested Thrisha Simon, 32, of Caribou on Wednesday. She was charged with robbery, burglary and assault.

Simon was taken to the Aroostook County Jail in Houlton, where bail was set at $10,000 cash or $25,000 surety.

Police still are seeking John Sam, 22, and Nicole Green, 28. The two transients who are wanted for questioning may be in the Presque Isle area, Gahagan said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Police Department at 493-3301.
