Ware home invasion suspect ordered held in jail

Kyle Decell charged with armed assault to rob, home invasion, witness intimidation

BELCHERTOWN, Mass. (WWLP) – A Warren resident is being held without the right to bail, after he allegedly forced his way into a 78 year-old woman’s home, threatened her with a knife, and robbed her.

Kyle Decell was arraigned Thursday at Eastern Hampshire District Court in Belchertown, in connection to a home invasion Wednesday in Ware.

Ware Police Chief Kenneth Kovitch told 22News that a masked suspect came into the home on Malboeuf Road, and held the elderly woman to the floor at knifepoint, before stealing jewelry and cash. Police arrested the suspect a short time later on West Warren Road.
