The incident took place in New Haven County around 2:45 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 6 on Woodlawn Avenue in Ansonia.
According to Lt. Patrick Lynch of the Ansonia Police, the victim, a 65-year-old Ansonia resident, reported someone knocked on his door and when he opened the door two men forced their way into his residence.
One man was armed with a handgun and asked the homeowner where his money was. The victim reported the man with the handgun then took a knife and cut him in the upper body, Lynch said.
Both men then fled the residence, Lynch said. The victim described one of the suspects as a Black male about 6 feet 2, 30 to 40 years old, and the other attacker was just described as shorter than the first man.
"This appears to be an isolated incident," Lynch said.
