MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Six people have been arrested in Madison for a violent home invasion in which the wrong house was apparently targeted.
Police said Monday that the assailants were armed when they forced their way into a north side Madison residence on February 23rd. Officials said they beat and robbed an innocent couple inside -- and several men sexually assaulted a woman who was six months' pregnant.
Police said the attack went on for 40 to 50 minutes before the couple went to a nearby business to call 911.
Officials said two of the suspects were later caught on video trying to hide or destroy items stolen in the home invasion.
Dane County's Crime Response Team has been providing services to the victims -- the woman and a 30-year-old man.
Police said they believe the suspects knew they were in the wrong house very early during the ordeal, and they carried it out anyway. The suspects are all 20 to 23 years old. Police said they could face numerous charges which include armed robbery and first-degree sexual assault.
