Methuen Police Seek Home Invasion Suspects

Methuen Police Chief Joseph Solomon.

Methuen police are asking for the public’s help to identify three male suspects wanted in connection with two “home invasions” Sunday night.

The burglaries occurred at about 8:20 and 9 p.m., Sunday, at homes on Howe and Camden Streets respectively, according to a statement from Methuen Police Chief Joseph Solomon. The suspects, described as Hispanic men, about five feet, 10 inches tall with medium builds and wearing black masks, broke into the homes and were armed with handguns. They spoke in English and Spanish as they demanded money and jewelry from at least one of the female residents. They also reported the suspects fled with either jewelry, personal items or cash.

“We believe these two incidents are related due to the similar descriptions and actions of the suspects. We are asking for the public's help identifying these men," Solomon said. "If anyone has any information, or saw anything suspicious over the weekend, we ask that they immediately contact police."

Police are also investigating whether a gold minivan seen outside one residence could be involved.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Methuen police at (978) 983-8698.
