RANDOLPH — Police are looking for the man who broke into an Elm Street home Saturday, assaulted the homeowner and got away with money.

Capt. Daniel Davies of the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office said the victim, a 66-year-old man, suffered minor injuries during the home invasion.

He refused medical treatment, Davies said.

The break-in occurred around 11:15 p.m. Saturday as the victim slept.

A man entered the home and encountered the homeowner, Davies said.

The robber demanded money, which the victim refused, and then responded by assaulting the homeowner, Davies said.

The homeowner then gave the robber an undisclosed amount of money before he fled from the house on foot.

Kennebec County Sheriff’s deputies, Gardiner police and Maine State Police, as well as a tracking dog, searched the area but did not find the robber, Davies said.

Police said the robber’s identity and whereabouts are unknown.

Davies wouldn’t release additional case details, such as a description of the burglar or whether a weapon was involved, saying it could compromise the police investigation.

Davies said the home invasion appeared to be random and isolated. “There’s no indication that person is targeting that area,” Davies said.
