Concord police looking for two men in alleged South End home invasion

The Concord police have asked for help in finding two suspects they say took part in a home invasion and armed robbery Wednesday night in the South End.

Lt. Timothy O’Malley said the incident took place between 7:30 and 8 p.m. at an apartment on Concord Street. The two males reportedly entered the unit armed with a handgun and a knife, and disguised by cloth face masks.

“The armed subjects threatened two 16-year-old males who were inside the apartment at the time,” O’Malley said in a statement. “They bound the two juveniles with tape and robbed them of a quantity of cash and a handgun.”

A 7-year-old child was in the apartment at the time, O’Malley said, but he or she was not harmed. No other injuries were reported.

O’Malley declined to comment on a possible motive behind the alleged robbery, saying only that the case is being investigated. He said detectives were up until 3 a.m. interviewing people connected to the incident. The armed suspects are described as white males, “approximately 6 feet tall with medium builds, and in their late teens or early 20s.”

Anyone with information regarding the incident can contact the Concord police at 225-8600, or at the regional crimeline by calling 226-3100, texting TIP234 and a message to CRIMES (274637), or going to concordregionalcrimeline.com.
