HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Two people were arrested, accused of breaking into a home early Wednesday morning in Hartford.

Police said the home burglary on Beacon Street happened just after midnight when a resident heard male voices in the home. She had locked herself in a third-floor closet and called 911.

The suspects, an 18-year-old and a 16-year-old, were in possession of several items taken from the victim’s home, as well as a set of car keys.

One suspect was identified as Leonardo Ramirez, of Hartford. He was charged with home invasion, possession of a dangerous weapon, fourth-degree larceny, and criminal attempt of first-degree larceny.

The 16-year-old male arrested was not identified because of his age.

Police said they also had brass knuckles and pepper spray.

The victim was not harmed.
