Juvenile arrested in Bristol home invasion

A juvenile male was arrested and identified on Tuesday.

BRISTOL, Conn. — A juvenile male suspect was identified and arrested on Tuesday after Bristol investigated a report of a man who entered a girl's bedroom on Sunday.

The juvenile was charged with Home Invasion, Burglary in the First Degree, Risk of Injury to a Minor, and Disorderly conduct. He will be arraigned in New Britain Superior Court.  

On the day of the invasion, Bristol police said they were called to a house on Ivy Drive at approximately 4:40 a.m. It was determined that the suspect had gained access to the home and entered the girl's bedroom. When the girl confronted the suspect, he fled the home. 

FOX61 spoke with the teen's mother off-camera Saturday who said they are still in shock. She said her daughter is hanging in there but is still upset by the encounter. The mother said she's thankful they had security cameras to capture the person, who appears to be wearing a mask from the popular horror video game "Five Nights at Freddy's."

Neighbors told FOX61 they were shocked to hear what happened as it's a quiet and peaceful area. Many said police asked for possible security footage that may help identify the masked person.

"It’s concerning to me because it’s what we consider a safe neighborhood," Robert Kriwitsky said. "Obviously we’re standing in front of Ivy Drive School. It’s very concerning especially if you’re telling me somebody was home."

Kriwitsky has lived on the street for nearly 40 years and says this makes neighbors more vigilant. Glenn Michelson has lived in the area nearly his whole life and said what happened was surprising.

"I do believe this is a great neighborhood. This is just an isolated incident I hope," he said. "Very surprised, but I think everyone is in any neighborhood when you start seeing this stuff."

Bristol Police were seen patrolling the street Saturday.
