Manchester Police are investigating a home invasion that occurred Tuesday night when they say an unidentified Hispanic man entered a Woodland Street apartment while a woman and small child were home, and a brief struggle ensued.
According to police, the home invasion occurred at approximately 7:20 p.m. at 146 Woodland St. when an unidentified Hispanic man entered an apartment where a woman and small child resided. Police say the woman briefly struggled with the man, and that the suspect then fled the scene. Police described the suspect as a Hispanic man wearing a black sweatshirt, blue jeans, a dark "beanie" style hat and a backpack.
The female victim suffered "minor non-life threatening injuries," according to police.
Police said it appears that the suspect was looking for specific items that he believed was located in the apartment, and that it appears the residence was not targeted at random.
