AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Agawam police were called to a condominium complex on Beekman Drive Wednesday afternoon for a report of a home invasion.
Agawam Police Lt. Jennifer Blanchette told 22News no one was hurt in the alleged home invasion and that they are still looking into what happened. She said the call came in around 1:30 p.m.
Officers responded to 23 Beekman Drive, where they said they found the victim. The victim said he had been gone for a short period of time and within moments of entering his home, he was grabbed from behind by two unknown males, who were possibly of Hispanic descent.
The victim told police he was bound and gagged by the suspects who threatened to hurt him, before taking off with some property and cash.
The victim said shortly after the suspects left, he freed himself from his restraints and asked his neighbor to call the police.
The victim said one of the items taken was his cell phone.
When our 22News camera crew got to the Beekman Place Estates condominiums, we could see marked and unmarked police cruisers outside a condo. Officers were taking photos and speaking with residents.
Blanchette said it is early in their investigation and that they are still gathering statements from witnesses.
You are asked to call Agawam police at (413) 786-1717, if you have any information about this incident.
