Ipswich Police Arrest Man for Home Invasion that Injured Resident
IPSWICH — Chief Paul A. Nikas reports that the Ipswich Police Department arrested a man today after he allegedly entered a residence in town with a weapon and seriously injured the homeowner.
NATHAN KILGOUR, AGE 32, OF IPSWICH is charged with Home Invasion (Felony).
At approximately 3 p.m., police received a report that a man had broken into a residence on Blaisdell Terrace while armed with a club. The man then allegedly struck the homeowner with the club before fleeing the scene.
Responding officers provided immediate aid to the homeowner, who suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. The victim was transported to an area hospital via ambulance.
Police obtained a description of the suspect and his vehicle from the victim. Officers were then able to locate the man, identified as KILGOUR, at his home on High Street a short time later. He was placed under arrest without incident.
KILGOUR was booked at the Ipswich Police Station and later transferred to the Middleton House of Corrections, where he is being held on $7,500 cash bail pending his arraignment.
“I would like to commend the quick actions of Ipswich officers in locating and apprehending this violent subject before the incident escalated further, which could have resulted in more people being injured, including the suspect himself,” Chief Nikas said.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
