1 arrested, 1 at large after NH home invasion
WINDHAM, N.H. (WHDH) -- One suspect has been arrested and one remains at large after police say two men allegedly broke into a Windham, N.H. home Saturday night.
The woman who was inside at the time told police she was tied up by the two burglars. Police say she managed to call 911 from inside the house while the men were also inside.
When officers arrived to the scene, one of the suspects ran away and the other got into a car and sped off.
Officers initially gave chase, but the suspect driver crashed into some woods a few blocks away.
Neighbors were told to get inside and lock their doors.
"I woke up and started hearing the helicopter once over top of my house, twice over top my house, three times over top my house, so that obviously got my attention," said Daniel Spalinger, a neighbor.
Witnesses said they saw officers scouring the area.
"Four, five men walking through the trees looking around the cars with flashlights and I probably counted three or four state troopers out there," said Bob Morgan. "When they said, 'Get back inside,' I figured it was more than just an accident."
By 3 a.m., the search continued and police caught one of the men; 31-year-old Luis Carvalho of Taunton, Mass.
The search for the second suspect was suspended around 5 a.m.
The victim was left unharmed, but it remains unclear why that home was targeted.
Carvalho is being charged with burglary, criminal restraint, criminal threatening, and disobeying a police officer.
Carvalho will appear in court on Monday.
