BRIDGEPORT - Police have arrested two men who allegedly broke into an Englewood Avenue home yesterday.

Officials say that Samuel Saunders and Johnnie Newkirk broke into the home yesterday afternoon.

The homeowner, Maria Reyes, says she believes it was an inside job, as one of the suspects knew her husband’s business partner. Reyes says nothing was taken from the home, but that some items had been put into a pillowcase.
