Police have cracked a home invasion/robbery case that occurred in October 2018 with the arrest of three people.

The invasion took place around 5 a.m. on Oct. 22, 2018, when the residents were getting ready for work, said Danbury Police Det. Lt. Mark Williams.

The victims reported that at approximately 5 a.m., they heard knocking on the door of their apartment. After initially disregarding the knocking, they opened the door at which time they were confronted by two men and a woman who forced their way inside the apartment, Williams said.

One of the suspects was carrying a large, kitchen-type knife and went into a bedroom stealing more than $1,200, before fleeing the apartment.

One of the residents recognized the female suspect, identified as Alexis "Koala" Brown, 27, of Niantic, allowing police to further investigate and identify the other two suspects, who confessed to the crime, Williams said.

Brown was arrested on Jan. 25 and charged with home invasion, larceny, conspiracy to commit home invasion and conspiracy to commit larceny. She was being held on $25,000 bond.

The other two suspects included:

  • Rowan “Krim” Kolamneo, 34, of Danbury. He was Feb. 1 and charged with home invasion, larceny, conspiracy to commit home invasion and conspiracy to commit larceny. He is being held on $100,000 bond.
  • Orlando “O” Cruz, 34, of New Haven was arrested on Feb. 14 and charged with home invasion, larceny, conspiracy to commit home invasion and conspiracy to commit larceny. He is also being held on a $100,000 bond.
