Police continue search for home invasion suspects
By Stacie N. Galang
Staff writer

PEABODY - A home invasion at Daniel Terrace that had dozens of police officers swooping on the scene for hours is still under investigation.
Police spokesman Lt. Dennis Bonaiuto said yesterday that no one has been arrested, but investigators do not believe the crime was random, he said. As such, neighbors should not be concerned about a similar incident, the police lieutenant said.
Officers received a call at 11:54 p.m. Monday that an armed person was trying to break into the house at 23 Daniel Terrace, a cul-de-sac in South Peabody. A couple were home with their adult son at the time, Bonaiuto said.
When officers arrived, they saw the homeowner coming out of the ranch-style home. The resident told police that two, possibly three, people had forced their way into the house.
One of the residents was struck several times in the head and shoulders with a blunt instrument, Bonaiuto said.
Police officers surrounded the house and called for help from a regional tactical group from the North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council. The police lieutenant said officers did not know if the suspects had left at that time.
The tactical team arrived at 4 a.m. but did not find anyone in the house, Bonaiuto said.
In total, 11 Peabody officers including the K-9 officer, detectives and supervisors arrived at the scene, he said. The police cleared the scene at 7:19 a.m.
Among the charges the suspects face are home invasion, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and breaking and entering in the nighttime with intent to commit a felony, the police lieutenant said.
Anyone with information about the crime should call Detective Sgt. Scott Richards at 978-538-6359.
