Original Story, Nov. 9

Two arrests were made in the past few days, reportedly in connection to the , police said.

Lt. Michael Gagner, head of the Investigative Division, said he expects the department will make two to three more arrests in connection to the invasion.

Richard Taylor, 22, of Melville Avenue, was arrested on Nov. 7 on charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery, conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary, home invasion, assault in the third degree, and conspiracy to commit assault in the third degree, police said. A court date or condition of release was not available in the report.

Legrander Worley, 22, of North Avenue in Bridgeport, was arrested on Nov. 8 and charged with home invasion, burglary in the first degree, robbery in the first degree, third-degree assault, and conspiracy to commit all those crimes, police said.  His court date is Nov. 14 and he was held in lieu of a $75,000.

The victims of the invasion came forward to police, believing they could identify the suspects, and that lead the detective bureau to make the arrests.  Lt. Gagner said recognizing the suspects on Facebook may have had something to do with the identification.

The investigation into the home invasion is ongoing, police said. The Sept. 24 incident resulted in three suspects bursting into the home, demanding cash and making away with a purse (which was recovered, Gagner said)  and a cell phone. No one was harmed, police said.
