Windsor Police are investigating after two armed men broke into a South Windsor home early this morning. At 2:10 am police were called to a residence in the 3000 block of Kenilworth Drive for a report of a Break and Enter by two suspects carrying firearms.
When police arrived they were met by the residents of the home a 78-year-old man and his 73-year-old wife. The victims told police that they had retired for the evening at 9:00 pm on Wednesday night, and that they awoke to find two masked men standing in their bedroom. One of the suspects was carrying a black and silver handgun. One of the suspects ordered the victims not to move from the bed. Seconds later, the suspects exited the bedroom and fled from the home without uttering another word. Neither of the victims were physically injured during the ordeal.
A subsequent search of the home by police revealed that the suspects had knocked holes in the wall in two separate rooms of the home. Investigators are exploring the possibility that the suspects may have targeted the wrong house as it appears they were looking for something.

Suspect # 1 – Male, 5’9″, medium build, 180 lbs, wearing dark clothing and a dark balaclava covering his face.
Suspect # 2 – Male, 5’7″, 160 lbs, wearing dark clothing and a dark balaclava covering his face. He was carrying a silver handgun with a black handle.
