    A Hamden teen has been charged in a series of home invasions and burglaries.

    Officials say an 18-year-old has been arrested in connection with a burglary and attempted sexual assault in Northeast D.C.

    The incident was reported at approximately 4 a.m. June 5 in the 2400 block of 2nd Street. Two men entered the home, one carrying a knife and the other a handgun.

    The men took iPhones, laptop computers and money before the gunman attempted to rape a woman. Her husband intervened.

    The altercation moved downstairs to the kitchen, where the gunman fired through the wall into the rowhouse next door, where an 18-year-old woman was sleeping on a couch. She was not injured.

    The burglars then fled the home.

    Tayvon Barber of Northeast is facing charges of burglary one while armed and assault with intent to commit first degree sexual assault while armed.
