Investigators got a break when one of the suspects left his gun behind in the second house and went to retrieve it without his mask on. The victims recognized him as 20-year old Dylan McPhee. He was arrested several hours later along with 19-year old Olivia Pope, after state police pulled then over on I-90 in the Central Massachusetts town of Sturbridge.
The owner of a house on Brown Road says he was forced to the ground by the intruders and had a gun pointed at his head. About an hour later Heather Smith says it was a real life nightmare for her aunt and uncle as the armed men forced their way into their home on New Road, tied them up, gagged them with duct tape and assaulted them. They stole jewelry from her aunt and took her uncle's heart medication before hitting him over the head with a gun.
"He's been discharged from the hospital, had staples in the back of his head . My aunt, she has some problems with her hand, looks like they grabbed her hand tried to get her Ring off her finger", she said.
