METHUEN – Methuen Police raced throughout the city early Wednesday evening as a home invasion occurred on Ingalls Court by three armed men, on described as a black male, fled in a gray 2004 Inifinity licence plate 3PSH03. The vehicle was spotted near Market basket on Essex Street in Lawrence moments later but Lawrence Police were unable to locate the vehicle. 

The vehicle was registered to a woman on North Lowell Street in Methuen who told police her boyfriend Jordon had borrowed the vehicle. Police believe he is the driver of the missing vehicle and has two other passengers in the car. Police are cautioned that all may be armed (only two guns have been confirmed) and extremely dangerous. 

Shortly after the police responded to the home invasion Methuen police were called to a second home invasion on Larchwood Road where three suspects were seen fleeing in a silver car, two guns were used. 

Police do not believe the home invasions are related.

Earlier on Wednesday there was a triple stabbing at the Holy family Hospital in Methuen.

    Wow crime is rampant in MINGYA Valley…
    I hope the new mayor of Lawrence can make a big difference…seems he is already making some big changes….citizens need also to get involved and show this element that it’s not going to be put up with anymore…

    I wouldn’t go to Lawrence for anything. It has turned out to be the scum of all cities. I hate to sound racial but it is all being caused by radical young Hispanics. Send them back to the Dominican Republic and give our police departments a break.

      Any chance this is the 1993 Methuen High Grad?

    “kill all these fucking criminals and send a message through the city of Lawrence” – are an insane troll.

    Lawrence is a sanctuary city now. Attracts a lot of criminals.
