HAMDEN, CT (WFSB) -

A 23-year-old man was arrested after being involved in a home invasion in Hamden earlier this month.

Kenneth Mckay, of Enfield, was charged with first-degree home invasion following a robbery on June 3.

Police said the incident started when an unidentified 63-year-old man heard a knock at the door at his home on Arch Street around 10 p.m. Police said Mckay, who was wearing a mask and dressed in dark clothing, was outside the home.

Mckay “forced entry into the residence” and once inside the home, police said “a struggle ensued” between the suspect and the 63-year-old man.

Police said Mckay “punched the victim in the face and cut him several times with the knife, on his arms.”

Then, Mckay is accused of stealing $540 from the man.

After a police investigation, Mckay was arrested on Sunday.

Besides being charged with first-degree home invasion, Mckay was charged with first-degree robbery and second-degree assault on an elderly person.

Mckay is being held on a $250,000 bond. He is expected to be arraigned at Meriden Superior Court on June 17.
