2 men arrested for armed home invasion Wednesday; beat residents with hammer and crowbar
KEENE — The two men who allegedly broke into a Keene home and beat the residents with a hammer and a crowbar on Wednesday have been arrested.
Police responded to the residence at 45E Damon Court at about 5:08 a.m. on Wednesday for a report of a man yelling for help.
Jacob Hudson, 20, of Keene, and Austin Furlong, 20, homeless, allegedly entered the residence with a crowbar and a hammer with the intent to rob them, according to police.
The residents of the home, Randy Fish, 53, and Ricki Fish, 49, both sustained deep lacerations to their head, which required emergency medical treatment. They have since been released from the hospital.
