Worcester, MA (October 15, 2017) - On Thursday October 12th at about 9:30 PM, Worcester Police officers were dispatched to a residence on Clifton St for an unknown problem. Upon arrival, the officers were flagged down by three residents who said three males had just broken their door down while they were inside their apartment. One of the residents said that he heard a commotion in the hallway outside his apartment. When he opened the door to investigate, he observed what appeared to be a staged fight. He had a bad feeling about this and closed the door immediately. Shortly afterward, three males kicked the door in and entered the apartment.
The intruders grabbed one of the residents and held a knife to his throat. They grabbed another resident and threw him to the ground, dislocating the resident’s shoulder. The intruders demanded money and threatened the residents. Eventually the three intruders fled the residence on foot.
The victims knew one of the intruders, Tobias Humm, nineteen-years-old of 47 Florence St, because they were all students together at Clark University. Worcester Police officers applied for a warrant for Mr. Humm, charging him with Home Invasion, Armed Assault in a Dwelling, Assault and Battery, Assault with a Deadly Weapon (Knife), Assault, While Armed, with Intent to Rob, Kidnapping, and Vandalism. Mr. Humm was located on Sunday October 15th by Clark University Police, and placed under arrest. He will be arraigned in Worcester District Court on Monday.
