A 36-year old Milford man has been charged with home invasion, among other charges, for allegedly forcing his way into the home of a former companion early Tuesday.

Christopher Millhouse allegedly broke through the front door of the West Orland Street residence after the former partner refused him entry about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

Prior to entering, police said Millhouse and the alleged victim were involved in an exchange at a window where Millhouse initially knocked and asked to be let in.

During that exchange, the former companion told Millhouse that the police were contacted, police said. Once inside, police said Millhouse restrained the alleged victim as he or she called 911.

Responding officers found Millhouse hiding in the attic area of the residence and he was taken into custody, police said.

The New Haven Avenue man faces charges of home invasion, third-degree assault, first-degree unlawful restraint, second-degree burglary, interfering with an emergency call and second-degree criminal mischief.

He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond.

so its just a mater of time before the next subhuman lowlife does this again . Where will it happen? My family and their safety is not something to gamble with , knowing that 85% of these home invasions happen through the door I secured my door with a home invasion proof door,Gibraltdoor is the best solution to properly secure your home . a friend reccomended the Gibraltdoor to me and I put one on my front door and I put another on a closet and created a safe room.The Gibraltdoor is online and their video of the police trying to get through it with a battering ram is a must see!This is a new product they are east coast based but will ship , be proactive and secure your doors!
