Randolph Police Investigating Armed Home Invasion

RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace reports that the Randolph Police Department is investigating a report of an armed home invasion that took place Monday afternoon.

At approximately 1:15 p.m., Randolph Police received a 911 call from a 15-year-old boy who said he had been confronted by two masked men outside of his home on Lisa Road. The youth reported that one of the men had brandished a gun.

He told officers that he was at his mailbox outside of his home when the men walked up to him from behind.

They walked the boy into his home and one of the men stayed with him downstairs while the other went upstairs and rifled through multiple rooms. No one else was inside the home at the time.

The men reportedly stole a safe from a bedroom and then fled the area.

The boy told police that he believes the men fled in a black Honda with a third person inside.

The boy was not injured.

Randolph Police are actively investigating this incident. A preliminary investigation indicates that this was not a random act. Anyone with information is asked to the call the police station at 781-963-1212.
