Warrant Issued for Suspect in Ayer Home Invasion
By Jon Winkler
AYER -- Police are searching for a 28-year-old Nashua resident who is believed to have been involved in a home invasion last month.
An arrest warrant for Carlos Asencio was obtained by Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Ayer Police Chief William Murray on Monday afternoon.
Asencio has been charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime to commit a felony, armed home invasion, assault with the intent to murder, masked armed robbery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a household or family member. Police believe that Asencio knew the victim, according to police.
According to police, a woman entered the Ayer Police Department on April 21 at 4:46 a.m. suffering injuries and reporting a man had attacked her after entering her home on East Main Street.
Police believe that the invader was wearing a mask and carrying a handgun. The invader allegedly attacked the woman with a stun gun before engaging in a physical altercation that injured both parties, though the suspect then fled the scene, according to police. Neither person had life-threatening injuries.
Police believe that Asencio is no longer in Massachusetts, but they are working to find his exact location. Ryan’s office, Ayer Police and the U.S. Marshalls Service are involved in the ongoing investigation.
