NH police actively searching for armed burglary suspects
MANCHESTER — Police are actively searching for two suspects who broke into a home Thursday and hit one of the residents in the head with a pistol multiple times.
Manchester police said around 11:30 p.m. they responded to an apartment at 24 Schuyler Street for a report of an armed home invasion.
According to police, Corey Raikes and Becky Smagula were home with their infant child when they heard a knock at their door. Two armed male subjects then forced their way into the couple's apartment.
Police said one of the suspects struck Raikes in the head with the pistol multiple times, and he was transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
According to the victims, nothing was taken during the incident.
The suspects were described as tall, thin black males wearing all dark clothing with either masks or hoods concealing their faces.
The suspects were last seen running north from the area, and police said a K-9 track turned up nothing due to a large amount of foot traffic in the area.
Police said this does not appear to be a random incident and released video footage of the assailants.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Manchester police at 603-792-5500, or Manchester Police Crimeline at 603-624-4040.
