Anyone find out why that home invasion where a person was injured was never reported by the police??? I know the Patch had quoted on facebook about a lot of activity on Chandler Street? Could it be because the Fire Chief lives there? I think the abutting neighbors should know, especially because of all the house break-ins we've had lately. I hope the injured person is safe.

Bob, this was the lead story in our Police Log on Saturday, Nov. 10. Tewksbury http://tewksbury.patch.com/articles/tewksbury-woman-reports-break-in-assault Now, as yet, I do not believe an arrest has been made. But I can check on that.
