WATERBURY–Police are investigating a home invasion and kidnapping.

On August 3, the police began investigating the incident, which occurred on August 2.

The victim told police that he and a female friend were at the Thirsty Goat bar, located on Scovill Street in Waterbury, on Saturday night into Sunday morning, and before leaving were accused of stealing a purse. The woman returned to the bar to look at surveillance video of her allegedly stealing the purse, and in the meantime her keys were taken away while multiple people left to find the man at his home in Watertown.

The suspects were in no way associated with the bar, and the bar was not involved in the incident.

At least five suspects forced their way into the man’s Watertown home and forced him to return to the bar against his will. He was then assaulted at the bar by multiple people, while his female friend was allowed to leave.

The man sustained multiple injuries, including fractures.

Four people have been arrested, and police expect to make more arrests.

The arrests include:

  • Anthony Carroll, 26, charged with home invasion, kidnapping in the first degree, burglary in the first degree and larceny in the first degree.
  • Caiyle McKenzie, 26, charged with home invasion, kidnapping in the first degree and burglary in the first degree.
  • Marnie Sbordone, 27, charged with home invasion kidnapping in the first degree, burglary in the first degree and assaultĀ in the first degree.
  • Matthew Shea, 33, charged with home invasion kidnapping in the first degree, burglary in the first degree and assaultĀ in the first degree.

All four are due in court on August 18, and bond was set at $75,000.
