4 people indicted in home invasion
NASHUA - Two women and the men they allegedly recruited to commit a home-invasion robbery in Nashua have been indicted on charges of beating two men and taking their money. A Hillsborough County grand jury this month indicted Sarah Coburn, Crystol Pelletier, Luis Medina and Roberto Roig on an assortment of felony robbery charges. The indictments stem from the night of Aug. 10, when Coburn and Pelletier allegedly visited two male friends at their 55 Worcester St. home and took some money from a wallet. Coburn and Pelletier contend they were collecting money owed to them, police said. The men protested, so Coburn and Pelletier then called for three male accomplices who were waiting just outside, police said. Medina, Roig and the two women, allegedly punched one of the residents and hit the other on the head with a glass bottle, the indictments allege. At the time of the incident, police said Kevin Greenleaf also participated in the home invasion, but his name was not in the batch of indictments handed up by the grand jury this month. The women left the home with an undisclosed sum of cash, police said. The two residents required medical treatment but were not seriously injured, police said. Coburn, 21, and Pelletier, 19, both of 445 Willow St., in Manchester, each face a Class A felony robbery charge for acting in concert and hitting the victim with the bottle and a Class B felony robbery charge for punching the other victim. Roig, 22, address unknown, also faces the same charges. A Class A felony robbery charge carries a 7-1/2- to 15-year prison sentence and $4,000 fine, and a Class B felony robbery charge carries a 3-1/2- to 7-year prison sentence and $4,000 fine. Medina, 28, of 22 Perham St., faces two Class A felony robbery indictments. Medina was arrested nearly two months after the alleged home invasion. He and another man held police at bay outside a home for eight hours. When the Nashua Police Special Reaction Team burst into the 63 Dexter St. home, officers found Medina hiding in the attic and Fernando Alvarez in a closet. Medina was arrested on the home invasion charges and a fugitive charge based on a warrant charging cocaine sales in Massachusetts.
