Update Wednesday, 11:00am: Lieutenant John Slusarz informed media that several inquiries had been made concerning this home invasion incident, specifically whether or not it was random or targeted.
“I have spoken with the detectives investigating this incident and they have informed me that based on their investigation the evidence indicated this was a targeted incident and not a random act,” Slusarz said.
Original story, Wednesday, 10:30am: On Saturday, Aug 4, around 3:00pm, Greenwich Police were summoned to a private residence on Brook Drive on a report of a home invasion robbery. Brook Drive is located off Field Point Road south of I95.
When officers arrived, they found the victim restrained and bleeding from injuries sustained in the crime.
The victim reported that he had been bound and beaten by a group of armed individuals who had forced their way into his home and demanded cash and jewelry.
Officers treated the victim’s injuries and searched for any suspects remaining in the area.
Greenwich Police detectives processed the scene for evidence, interviewed witnesses and developed several leads on suspects.
Investigators were able to quickly identify one of the suspects and obtain an arrest warrant from Stamford Superior Court which included provisions for extradition and a court set bond of $500,000.
Detectives determined that the suspect was possibly located at an address in New York City and requested assistance from the NY Violent Crimes Task Force to locate and apprehend him.
On Tuesday agents and officers from the FBI and NYPD arrested Hassan Rodney Washington, 46, of 275 Cherry St in New York City as a fugitive based on the arrest warrant held by Greenwich Police for:
Home Invasion, Robbery 1, Kidnapping 1, Assault 1, and Larceny 6.
Washington is being held in New York pending extradition to Connecticut.
Greenwich Police say the investigation remains active and additional arrests are anticipated.
