3 men arrested in connection with York County home invasion; 4th suspect sought

LYMAN, Maine — Two Massachusetts men and a New Hampshire man have been arrested in connection with a home invasion in York County last week, according to state police.

Officers are also seeking another man in connection with the Jan. 15 armed invasion, according to Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland.

Arrested in New Hampshire over the past two days were Andre Thomas, 20, and Vincent Casazza, 19, of Massachusetts and Xavier Watson, 22, of New Hampshire, McCausland said.

The name of the fourth suspect was not disclosed.

McCausland said a family of five was held at gunpoint and one sexually assaulted, while guns, money, medical marijuana and electronic equipment were stolen from the home on Jan. 15.

State police were working with Nashua, New Hampshire, police and the U.S. Marshal’s Violent Offenders Task Force, McCausland said.

Watson was taken into custody Tuesday by the federal task force in Brentwood, New Hampshire, while Thomas and Casazza were captured in Nashua Wednesday night.

All three men will be charged with theft of a firearm, robbery and burglary upon being extradited to Maine while Watson will also face charges of aggravated assault and unlawful sexual contact. All three are being held at the Rockingham (N.H.) County Jail.

McCausland said two shotguns and a rifle, several hundred dollars in cash, four cellphones and two laptops were among the stolen items.
