Police are investigating two armed home invasions Wednesday night that police believe are connected and likely drug-related, according to a release.

A 25-year-old man called police around 10:40 p.m. after two masked men broke into a Paul Avenue home where he was staying, police said. The victim told police one man put a gun to his head and asked, “Where’s the stuff?”

The victim was downstairs at the time of the burglary and called police after hearing a window shatter and people rifling through things upstairs, according to the release. When the burglars were notified that police had been called they fled empty-handed.

When police arrived, two women at the scene told police they were brought to Paul Avenue against their will from an apartment in the 2800 block of Dryden Drive where another home invasion occurred, according to the release.

The women told police the burglars also wanted to know where the “stuff” was at when they entered their Dryden Drive apartment.

A man, who is currently in prison on drug charges, is connected to both targeted addresses, police said.
