RAYMOND - A home invasion and robbery has one Chester Road homeowner telling NH1 News he is lucky to be alive.
And he got some help from some friends on the other side of a TV screen.
Neighbors learned about the attack Tuesday night.
“I drove by about 5:45 and I saw a police cruiser, and then I drove by again at 9:30 last night, and it was still there with the lights on and there was tape up. I knew something was going to on,” said Kim Blanchet of Sandown.
Blanchet doesn't live in Raymond but said she drives by the home regularly.
“The homeowners are pretty new there. Also, I remember when the house was empty. He just brought that property not too long ago, I’d say about two years ago,” said Blanchet recalling the Chester Road purchase.
Jack Reid Jr. was home alone when two men barged in wearing ski masks.
Reid said he was playing video games and had left the front door unlocked when he heard the two men enter his home. He immediately told a fellow online gamer to call for help.
Reid said he try to fight back, but he was pepper sprayed and then restrained while the men rummaged through the home taking small items and wrestling memorabilia.
The men then hijacked his 2010 Dodge Charger, but police later found it and some of the items taken just a few streets away.
“The fact that they only took wrestling memorabilia and silly stuff like that makes you wonder if there are drugs or whatever,” said Blanchet.
One suspect was described as 6-foot-2-inches the other 5-foot-8-inches – both described as white males.
Reid's father was killed in 2005 in a murder-for-hire scheme in which five people were convicted. Police said they don't believe the attack is connected to that case.
“We're not sure of that yet, but our detectives are looking into it at this point,” said police Lt. Mike Labell
Police took custody of Reid's car, combing it for evidence and looking for fingerprints that could lead them to the two masked men.
Anyone with information that might help police in their investigation is asked to call the Raymond police department at 895-4747.
