Woman calls 911 as man with knife enters her home

NORWICH – The Norwich Police Department responded to an armed burglary in progress early Saturday morning after a woman called 911 as a man with a knife forced his way into her apartment.

Norwich Police Chief Joseph Angelino said the crime was a domestic violence incident, explaining that the victim and defendant knew each other.

“These two people were not strangers. At one point they were involved in a relationship,” said Angelino.

Officers rushed to the disturbance at a multi-family dwelling on Cortland Street at around 5:30 a.m. Saturday and arrested Jose A. Irizarry, 28, of Elm Street, Norwich.
