NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Police are hunting for two men who broke into a Lambert Road home early Saturday morning and held a 60-year-old woman down on her bed while they collected jewelry and other items worth $40,000.
Police said they responded to a call at about 1:05 a.m. from a woman who said she had been tied up and robbed. Police said the woman was awakened after midnight by a man attempting to remove a bracelet from her arm.
